    Default Star of Hope

    Thanks Tony, always good to be able to trace a little of the history of the boat, I'll post some pictures in due course, once the wheelhouse is looking better, I've since checked the plate and it definitely identifies the owner as an N Dobbs, I've tried to track the name down but no success do far.

    Best

    Star of Hope was built for matt Verrill of staithes in mid 60's, before that they were using June and Eileen WY200 which came to Flamborough when Star of Hope was delivered.

    To all the lads who have replied to my post,i want to say a big thanks,ive had problems logging in on this site,and the information given has been a great help.I plan to go "up north " next week,and try and track down any old Staithes cobles.I have a few photos of "Embrace" looking in a sorry state,and im very interested in buying her from the owner at "Paddys hole" ...does anyone know the owner? Please keep the posts coming on anything to do with old Staithes cobles,and one day hope to see a few back in Staithes,instead of those ugly grp efforts! Cheers again,Argy V.

    In regards to WY 75 Coronation Queen, I can confirm that she was broken up a year or two ago. She belonged to my girlfriends dad Bob Green who sadly passed away two years ago. The coble was on a trailer in Bob's back yard and in a terrible state. So much infact it was too far gone. I was tempted to attempt to rescue it but it literally would mean building a new boat from the plank templates etc.

    Thanks for the update Dan.

    I had really hoped Coronation Queen might have survived as, along with everyone at the time, she was an important part of my childhood but the memories will linger on.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    It is sad. Another point aswell, Bob had actually built a cab for her and looked pretty smart on some of the photos I have seen.

    Hi Dan,
    Yes it is very sad to see another Coble go, I grew up with that boat and loved the whole history of her, the way she and Golden Crown WY 78 were named because they were both built for Staithes in 1953, but what was most important about Coronation Queen was really the people, Staithes and growing up, I have so many great memories and photos aboard that boat with Bill, Dickie and Willie. I am bringing my two boys back to the UK next year and taking them to Staithes and Whitby is a very important part of the trip, they only really know growing up in the city lifestyle of Melbourne. Part of me had hoped that Coronation Queen would turn up somewhere before we came back but if the old WY35 Patricia A/Ocean Queen is still there sitting on the wharf in Hartlepool we must go and see her instead.
    Thanks again for letting us know.

    Not personally no. I spent most of my childhood in Staithes but we moved away and I now live in Australia.

I believe that older Star of Hope was also one of the last boats to be actually built at Staithes. The build plate you have would appear to contradict parts of this but unfortunately I only have my memory of what I saw or was told at the time which, letís face it, was quite a while ago now!. There are sure to be people out there who would know more than me.
    Good luck with the repairs.

    Hi All,

    Just thought I'd bring you up to date with the Star of Hope. After failing miserably to get to grips with the restoration, it was taken over by Seaton Sluice sculptor and boat builder Tom Newstead who has lovingly restored her to a cabinless open coble. Great job, she's looking really good now and ready for the North Sea again, I think Tom intends to sell her, to an enthusiast who hopefully will both use and cherish her.IMG_3303[1].jpg
