Drekly is a genuine 16ft “Tidewaiters” punt and was used to put pilot or customs officer aboard ships, requiring bill of landing inspected. Possibly from Penzance in the early 1900’s, though only a guess. Painted sea green originally. Clinker built of Cornish elm. Still working as a service boat and is for hire from Richmond, River Thames. She now has a spritsail main and is owned by Mark Edwards. She has been to SSS many times before and has even been rowed in the Great Thames River Race by a group of guys from Mousehole.

Okay, thank you
