Launching Melinda Muriel

Richard Noble is driving the tractor and we have Keith Money and Stephan Tokarski working the boat. Believed to be launching owing to the absence of seagulls, often indicating a successful voyage; unless you know better? Shaun Clarkson has advised us that the boat was built by Billy Clarkson. Peter Appleton tells us: “The boat was named after Melinda Muriel Thomas, who would have been Stephen’s grandmother I think. She married one of my great-uncles, Robert Evans, at Brotton in 1927.”
