Out of the blue and while busy sorting out everything for the return of "Phyllis" from Largs to Deganwy a comment was received from the website. It was almost two weeks before viewing the message but when I read it I was so excited.
Now able to email Allan, he was happy to send me a few photos. One of his grandfather Fredrick Whiteley with his mother Phyllis on a later boat "Chance" owned by the family.
Plus two other pictures when he and his wife visited Largs Marina before I brought her back down to Deganwy.
It's a shame that we never got to meet, but Allan tells me that the family still holiday in the cottage on Hilbre Island in the River Dee estuary. You never know we might get to meet one day!
