Fred Freeman added (June 2009): "... I (Fred Freeman) have the engine off the boat in my garage. I was give it by Len Hudson in 1970. The boat belonged to the old Tin Plate Works in Redbrook. When I worked in the Tin Works with Len Hudson we had to go out in the boat to clean and check the water pipe twice a year, that supplied the Tin Works with water in 1958 'till it closed in 1961".
