"Humble" was the
nickname given to the grandmother of the Golding brothers,
who ran a fleet of tripping boats out of Windsor from the
late 1800's through to the 1980's. This beautiful launch has
a long history and has been worked on by many Thames boatyards.
She came to us looking very sad in the winter of 2001 and
the painstaking work of removing every scrap of varnish inside
and outside started. Seven coats of varnish later and the
boat was back to her former glory.
