Hello, I just came across the photograph of the watercolour sketch of the Steam Drifter "Kessingland" LT 210, when I was researching steam drifter models & photographs. I painted this one as a retirement present for A.F.B. (Alex) Moon, Preventive Officer, H.M.Customs & Excise, when we were both serving at Harwich. I took early retirement in 1998, & re-located to a small village in Brittany, France, in 2011. I have 3 of my watercolours hanging in our 300 year old cottage. Steam Drifters "Waveney" & "Ambitious", & a Revenue Cutter beating out of Harwich Harbour. I wonder how much the "Kessingland" picture sold for ? No doubt Alex Moon has passed away. He was ex. Royal Navy, aboard a corvette in WWII. Regards, Perry Broad.
