Introducing the Association Boats & their Skippers
The Sea King
Skipper: Fraser Hicks
The Sea King was built in 1947, by Mashfords. This Plymouth built launch is pitch pine on oak frames of 'Carval' construction.
Fraser says how he became a member of the St. Mary's Boatmen's Association:
"My father (Mike Hicks) and I purchased of the launch 'Black Swan' in March 1985. I approched the members of the St. Mary's Boatmen's Association and asked for their approval of my joining, and I am pleased to say I was accepted!"
Fraser ran the Black Swan, an ex naval Liberty Boat, from 1985 until 1995, at which point he took over the Sea King from his father.
