Originally built in 1924 by Worfolk Brothers of King's Lynn as a pilot cutter, CHRISTINA LYNN has a carvel built hull of oak frames, Archangel redwood planking and pitch pine decks. She was cutter rigged with gaff and sprit sails. Her current engine is an inboard diesel made by Gardner in 1970, model 180 LXB, 6 cy, 180 bhp. She was in use as a pilot boat in King's Lynn until the 1960s and was then used for buoy laying for the Conservancy Board. In the 1970s she was converted to a prawn fishing boat and, in 1983, was bought by Paul Fitzgerald who gave her to her present owner in 1987. She was restored and re-launched in 1995, her restoration being aided by Bill Worfolk, her original builder, who was then 99 years old.
