Rima : A Boat of Many Names
I sailed past Margo as she lay to her mooring, August 2016. Back home, I found that she was not, apparently, Lloyd's listed, although she is known to the HOA and has featured in the Hillyarder magazine. Under Brian Smith's ownership Margo has cruised around Great Britain (2001), and been to the Netherlands (2008) - A planned trip to the Baltic has postponed in 2010 when Brian, a Marine Surveyor, discovered some structural problems and spent the year sorting them out instead. A year ago she went up for sale as Margo but, more recently, as Rima. Further investigation has revealed that Rima was her original name which she kept until at least 1980. I've been told that she was renamed Tea For Two and then Lady Pamela before becoming Margo; I have doubts about this...
