Part of the Solent HB Fleet
Mary Gray was one of nine Harrison Butler boats that gathered on the Newtown River in July 2014. Tom Riddell was her proud new owner and I had the pleasure of meeting him and his crew when they rafted up to my boat, Tramontana.
I know very little of Mary Gray's history although I have looked through the Lloyd's Registers and can confirm that she's not listed there, or (being pedantic) if she is, it's not under the name Mary Gray.
