Boats at Rye Harbour

postcard of unknown date
Picture Added on 03 April 2007.


Hello, my name is Sherry Bowe, nee Seymour, and I was born and raised in the village in the l950`s until I moved to Hayling Island in 1997. As children, myself and my three brothers regularly played on and around these boats at The Point, and the houses in the picture (in Camber) were seen clearly from my bedroom window. I vividly remember a German Boat called the `Morval` of suchlike, which we used to climb aboard to play on. It was moored in a natural mud harbour directly opposite my home in Coastguard Cottages. Very many happy days were spent messing about in the water there, and playing on the old railway line. Does anyone remember a charachter called `Shirty`? He had a bench named in honour of him I believe. Happy days. Sherry Bowe.

A beautiful picture, i have been asked by a local (Thanet) shopkeeper to try & find out the name of a fishing boat that carried the number RX222 in the 1940's, she beleives it was owned or skippered by the Tullett family, the info is for an elderly relative who used to work on her but can't remember her name, if anyone could tell me her name, or where i might be able to find out, i would be most grateful. Thanks. Mark Stanford
