G.Prout and Sons Ltd
Boatbuilding on Canvey
I recently saw Ian Hawks memories on Prouts Enterprise, and I thought you may be interested in some additional photos and info.
I worked for Prouts for 7 years in the early sixties and knew all the staff shown in the photo.
I think I should add Wally Faber who was not mentioned, as he worked with me building the 20 ft. cruising cat.
Together we also built a Jetty to the rear of the Factory to access the deep water in the creek. As well as other enterprises.
As a point of interest, Dave Abbott shown in the staff photo between Frank Coleman and Mike Brown is my Nephew.
I hope the attached pictures of Wally and myself building the 20 ft cruiser may be of interest.
