Boarding Ladder lost/found


Recommended Posts

I know of an old boatyard owner on the Chet who lost a boarding ladder made by his late father in last winters floods, it was washed away on a surge tide, and he couldnt find it depite extensive searches of the area, he was offering a bottle of something nice to anyone who could find it for him, he doesnt post on here, but he was once a prolific poster on another forum, although I havent seen him around on line for some time, you could try calling him on Riverine's number if hes still around there, as someone did say he hadnt been too well of late.

There is a good chance this is the ladder from Riverine due to where it was found.

I believe the owner (Bill Maxted?) is hard to get hold of and has been unwell, therefore I am going to write to the yard but if someone did spot or can contact Bill please let him know about this post.

Well it was a shame it wasnt the one that Bill Maxted lost, as it was of great sentimental value to him.

I hope he eventually gets well again and is able to return to his yard, he was so kind to us a few years ago when the news came through that my baby grandson had died at home whist we were out on a hire boat, he offered to return the boat back to Brinkcraft from the south for us, and to take us back to the yard in his car to save time, he was also a mutual friend of a lady who my father worked for when I was a child living at Haddiscoe, and who recently sadly passed away at the ripe old age of 89yrs.

I have often wondered of late what had happened to him to stop him posting

Thanks guys for contacting Bill to ask cheers
