About this Item

A portfolio of photographs, sketches and maps, compiled by Robin Kilroy. There are maps showing the route taken by Boleh on her voyage from Singapore to Salcombe. There is also a detailed set of sketches showing the floor plan of the hull. Robin shows his artistic prowess in his sketches of marine birds and animals.

The portfolio includes some rare black and white photographs taken of the Boleh crew during her long first voyage, and of some of the stages of construction of the junk yacht in Singapore. Robin used this portfolio to give lectures on his fascinating story, during the 1950’s.
