BBC article on Boadi's birthday

Boat reaches its 200th birthday

A man is celebrating the birthday of his boat built three years after Nelson died at Trafalgar and seven years before Napoleon met his Waterloo.

Boadicea, a twelve-and-a-half ton, 30ft (9m), oyster smack owned by fireman Reuben Frost of West Mersea, Essex, was built in 1808.

It is thought to be the oldest boat in the world still regularly sailed.


Hi and welcome to the new look web site for Boadicea CK213 i hope you enjoy it.

I will slowly bring it up to the 21st century as time allows but please let me know if there are any problems.
