I thought the hull lines were familiar eddyw.

I must have seen her working from Southend beach near the pier or old Gasworks loading jetty.

The wheelhouse conversion is typical of several done by Bob Crews when he was involved with boats in Plymouth and Dartmouth. "My Queen," another ex Southend boat springs to mind.

Regards.
