FLORENCE, a Falmouth work boat, was originally registered at Truro TO9. Built in 1895 by William 'Foreman' Ferris at Yard Point, Devoran, she was used for oyster dredging in winter and long lining in summer. She was also raced during summer weekends.
The last example of Ferris' work, FLORENCE had huge local interest, especially in St Mawes where she was raced on many occasions, crewed by locals.
