Papers found for J3 – Missy

I never knew the name for my Jollyboat…..and have normally called her ‘Effie’ after my mother.
I knew that it was made for Max Aitken and lived for a long while in his boat house next to Uffa Fox’s in Isle of White.  I knew it was sailed by Hillary Laing (Feranti) quite a bit before being used for development and research into ‘fast’ hull shapes when it was fitted with a speedo gland and presumably big clocks.  The clocks have gone although the place where they were is still evident.

But Andrew Richardson – Keeper of the Records for all things Jollyboat has found the original measurement form for J3 andnow I know she was called ‘Missy’.

Great news and hopefully we will be able to bring out more of this kind of information in the future.

Here is the Measurement Form.
