Birdham ‘scrub-up’ for Boleh’s 70th

By 21st February 2019News

Boleh will be 70 this year!  To ensure everything is shipshape for the coming season, she has recently moved to Birdham Pool for 2 months of winter maintenance with Tim Gilmore Ltd.  Tim and his team played an important part in  Boleh’s restoration, building her complex mast structure, and have looked after her ever since.

Picture shows Boleh ‘locking-in’ to Birdham Pool, helped by bearded shipwright (and former Boleh apprentice) Jason Rankin and our Naval Architect, Graham Westbrook.  Check out our recent social media posts to see pictures of Boleh under construction all those years ago in 1949.
