Lilian

Lilian CK19 is an Essex Sprat Skiff, also known as a Bumkin. She was originally built in 1900 by Kidby boatbuilders in Brightlingsea and had an extensive rebuild in 2022 by local boat builder Gerard Swift. She would originally have been used to unload sprats from the local stowboating smacks at Brightlingsea. She is now used for pleasure sailing, racing in the local Mersea Fisherman’s Open Boat Fleet and occasionally oyster dredging & sprat trawling under sail.
