MOLLY Q is a Morecambe Bay Prawner of timber carvel construction, larch planks on oak frames and has a Perkins Perama diesel engine. She was built in 1914 by William & Sons in Crossfield of Arnside. The vessel was a past winner of the Lytham to Isle of Man and Fleetwood to Ramsay races. Well known in her day throughout the Irish Sea, both for her racing success and for being rescued by the Barrow lifeboat, she was owned for many years by Mr Selwyn Hooley, who, according to Ribble Cruising Clup president Mr. Tom Blasson knew no fear and did more for encouraging young people to sail on cruisers than any other man.
MOLLY Q now operates as a private leisure craft and is currently in very good condition following a major restoration.
