Seaward/nelson

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me the difference between a Seaward boat and a Nelson boat , are they the same company, do Seaward make Nelsons or visa versa ?

Any info greatly appreciated.

Seeing as no one has answered you, I'll have a go.

Seaward:- When underway with the coast over your shoulder

Nelson:-  Some sort of complicated wrestling hold

There's some detail here

http://www.nelsonboatownersclub.co.uk/nelsonstory.html

I think it's conceptually similar to the Aquafibre model of one company designing the mouldings and moulding them (or contracting another outfit to do that) and then supplying the mouldings to other yards to fit out and market as their own products.

Mould development is very costly, so not that many yards do the whole end-to-end process of first sketch to finished boat.

Thanks Oldgregg, sorry for late acknowledgement .  You are absolutely correct, further enquiries tell me Nelson hulls were indeed contracted out to various boat builders.

Surely not, more like yet another well known Norfolk  luminary or hero, along with the likes of Edith Cavell, Thomas Coke, Henry Blogg, Anna Sewell , Boudica, Ruth Maddoc, Robert Kett and Howard Carter. Norfolk is not just famous for its Broads :default_dry:

I was about to question Peter on his inclusion of Ruth Madoc, but thankfully checked out my facts first. Never realised she was born in Norwich. Still consider her Welsh though.

Arghhh, foiled, thought that I was going to catch someone out with that one!!

Met Ruth in Norwich some years ago, she was in panto with Paul Daniels where I was taking pictures. I didn't take to Paul but Ruth was a real sweety, a genuinely likable person, from Norfolk!
