Baden Powell is still in the water in the Bentink dock but as Covid hopefully eases it will be all hands on deck getting her out of the water, scrubbing off the barnacles, repainting and back into the water asap.
Last year when we went out of the docks into the Ouse I thought this was interesting. Its the dock gates with the original brick and stonework from 1869 and you can see the original water level measurement in roman characters. We will hopefully be passing here again soon.

Remember the Bentink dock so well as I visited there on so many occasions in my youth to go to the Worfolk Bros workshop there at the time. A learning process and many memories.....😀

As you know we are in the docks hoping to get out off the water for maintenance when circumstances allow????? But because of shipping we were asked to move Baden Powell a few days ago to the other side of the docks. Its was icy, cold and 7 in the morning when we were asked to do it and we then took this picture of the sunrise. ...

Baden Powell is now back in Kings Lynn and in the Bentinck Dock.
Regrettably due to Covid and the time of year we have decided that it won't be possible to run any more trips this year.
Thank you to everyone who has been able to help support us during this difficult time.
Over winter we will be working to anti-foul her bottom, repaint as needed and do a few upgrades. Many thanks to our sponsors and especially our Council, ABP docks and Travis Perkins.
Looking forward to seeing you next year on the new pontoon.

Model of the Lady of Lynn the last boat built by the Worfolks. We do not know who made the model but we are putting her up for auction to raise funds to keep the first boat built by Walter Worfolk afloat. ...
