I have been given a Ferry to restore/finish to working order. It was built by a gentleman who has since died and reflects a ferry he regularly used on holiday in Devon. He named it after his wife so the name is not right and I was assured it was a Brixham ferry which is not right. So I have an unknown name and crossing location but I do have you wonderful people who managed to help with the seaplane tender. All i can give you is some photos of the model.

Well have done some research and discovered this a representation of Mv Fairmile but without any of the forward superstructure forward of the aft passenger cabin. The livery seems to be inspired from the local life boat. So rather nice boat I will restore and use but no pattern to follow.
