Historic boat on display at the Museum

One of the two remaining seaworthy "Lerret" fishing boats is currently on display on the sea terrace outside Lyme Regis Museum (see picture). This is Vera, which was built in 1923 and on which Gail McGarva's new Lerret Littlesea was modelled. If you haven't seen a Lerret before, and you're in the vicinity of Lyme, now's your chance!
