2.15 'Turmoil' on the river at Hemingford Grey

Information from Mr Roger Hurst, currently in the Bahamas -
"The river tug boat 'Turmoil' was saved by the marine engineer, and Vicar of Hemingford Grey, the Reverend Don Brown from the mud of the River Nene and kept at Holt Island for the St Ives Sea Scouts. He gave the boat to my brother, Allan Hurst, who rebuilt it and used it for many years. In the photograph Allan is in the middle, wearing a black T-shirt, and I am in the maroon top. The boat was seen many times at the Hemingford Regatta. I think the photograph was about 1995. Don always said that the boat was never to be sold but given away to the next steam enthusiast and I think that is what Allan did before he died three years ago. I believe it is still in the Ely area. If anyone would like more technical information let me know."(July 2021)
