JUolly boats in Germany, 1943?

I’m a writer in Baltimore, USA, starting work on a book that involves, among other things, a Jew hiding in Berlin during the war who bought a “jolly boat” in 1943. Do you have:
* photos of a jolly boat that would have been common in Germany in those years.
* the dimensions of such a boat & details on its mast, rigging, oars, speed, etc.
* details on materials used in constructing it
* a sense of how popular such boats were in Germany or Europe in general at that time.
THANKS

JB 55 – Sailing in Oz

I have just finished restoring a Jolly Boat in Melbourne Australia. The boat (JB 55 – Catherine Lucy) was built in 1970 from cedar and is now looking sensational. The Port Melbourne Yacht club has approx 15 – 20 JB’s sailing regularly on Port Philip Bay. The racing is very competitive and well organised by the club. Be great to get a few of you UK JB sailors over for a yacht and a barbie in the sun…cheers John
