Sold to William Whewell Hogarth of Morecambe
Storms damage Skylark IX again but, this time, with a ‘broken back’ she is deemed
unseaworthy and written off. William Whewell Hogarth, another enterprising
fishing vessel owner and pleasure boat
operator, sees ‘her main bulk withstanding further heavy seas’, buys her and the
Morecambe Guardian exclaims: ‘Skylark will sail again’!
