NOTES:

* The butty Mary never had an official fleet number

+ The registrations for Dorney Court and Elsie Edith relate to the previous owner.

++ The registrations for Seascale, Southam, Starcross and Staverton predate their entry into the fleet as sometimes a boat’s cabin was completed in advance of other construction work enabling the Public Health examination to take place and the certificate to be issued before the launch.
