My Story
1900's to 1940's,
JAMES TAYLER. boatyard was Building Boats (yachts, river cruisers ect) for the gentry, Kings and MPs at Chertsey Surrey.
In 1937 he built, Express Cruisers including the FRAMAR LONDON.
We acquired the boat in May 2012 when we were looking for a boat to go up and down the rivers around Boston, Lincoln, Nottingham and
By chance, while we were moored at the Glory Hole in Lincoln, a passer-by noticed us and asked if we realised that we had a very special and very famous boat?
The local newspapers did a story on the boat for us as did BBC Radio Lincolnshire and with the help of the public we soon put together her history including her life as an RAF 'Flying Boat'.

It's fair to say that the Framer was in a pretty poor state when we purchased her. Being a 40ft wooden teak on oak boat with 2 big engines and streamlined hull, this boat was clearly built for speed.

We now believe she was used by MI5/SOE secret service to transport agents to meetings and submarine rendezvous.

With help we would like to renovate the framer and turn her into a floating museum to commemorate the brave men and women who gave and sacrificed so much for our freedom.

Help Needed ASAP **PLEASE**

The cause of her sinking is really unknown at this point based of 2 attempts by emergency services that didn't offer the Boat any chance of hope.
Their help will never be forgotten and will always be appreciated regardless of outcome.
But now the only hope this boat has now lays in the pockets of all people who care.
Our insurance will noway help us and this has lead us to need to ask.
If we can get her out! the location for her to have any chance is right near by.

Please share this or if anybody can donate directly to the Framar by cheque then please get intouch first.
or click on the paypal Donate button.
Any body who helps can have a remembrance memorial to be added to the boat if requested.
And will go on the national historic ships History.

I care about the wild life too! and this really hurts me emotionally.
