To Find A Boat:
The FMC and GUCCC fleet lists are in alphabetical order of originl name with any later names in the notes. Therefore, to find a boat which might not be using its original name, try doing a 'find' in your browser window. This is usually achieved using the key combination [Ctrl-F].

Code Letters: In the second column, an 'E' indicates an extant craft, 'X' indicates a craft no longer in existence and 'P' a partial existence only (usually as part of another boat). The 4th and 5th columns show fleet numbers and BW numbers where applicable. Where this is not obvious, 'B' is a butty/horse boat, 'M' is a motor boat and 'S' is/was a steamer.

Please help fill in any gaps in the BW numbers or correct any errors. Photographs especially welcome - especially digital in TIF format at least 1000 pixels wide - but we can cope with anything! Please email to the webmaster - link on menu frame on left of screen.

The WORLD'S OLDEST NARROW BOAT? - A loaded bronze age boat found in a midlands quarry.

TAY E Ex Thomas Clayton tar boat, In private ownership    
TEBAY E Here we have two boats claiming the same name. This of course is possible as the original station boat was certainly cut into two. The owner of the grey boat wasn't sure if it might be CALEB, but as that became HERON - and not shortened, whereas TEBAY was - then this could well be the stern half of this ex-LMS station boat. Either way, a new counter and back cabin have resulted in a potentially smart boat using an original stern as the current bow. Regarding the bow here, and its green guard paint, I need to confirm this is one of the boats from the mystery page seen heading the other way a few months earlier.
Obviously, the fully painted boat (2019) has significant hull & cabin differences from the above - much more in keeping with an original bow and replacement counter.
