“That’s a fabulous story,” editor Jacqui Harbison told FIVEaa.

“There’s been a lot of restoration to some of the school boat sheds,” she said, “and it’s a big expense, so a lot of them share the cost, share the boat shed.”

“This is about the one that was home to Popeye,” Jacqui said.

“It’s quite unique because the chap who ran the whole show couldn’t swim. This has been restored and the family have all been involved and we’ve shared some of their fantastic historic shots.”

Michael Keelan had some boat shed memories from back in the day…

“And also the boat sheds -- well known for their parties in the 60s and 70s.”
