Winteringham Haven and Boatyard

From a post card probably from pre-Great War days

The boat in the dry dock (left, looking as though it is on the bank .... but it’s in the dry dock!) is the keel “May Day.”  If “May Day” seems a strange name for a boat, bearing in mind the international distress call for boats at sea .... that call was only used from 1923, so is of no relevance at the time this boat was in use.  She was built by Dunston’s of Thorne, and captained by William Phillipson.  The boat closest to the camera appears to be called “Valkyrie.”
