Definately Bluebird.
Thanks a lot for that. Nice detail.
That's the mother of all samson posts there, ain't it?
Considering it's in the cabin!

BTW, did anyone discover who built these?
I'm wondering if it might have been Tough's at Teddington?

Looks like double diagonal or could it be one diagonal, one fore and aft?

Really, these launches are all a bit of a grouping on their own aren't they?  Nearly all handsome boats too.  Even the current Broads Police launches are attractive, although probably GRP, but nicely fitted out.  They keep one at Ludham, where the wherry, Albion, is kept.  The copper was warming up his pie when I was there.
What a nice job, eh?

They were built by either Tough Bros of Teddington or William Osborne Ltd of Littlehampton.
