    John Lewis was the author of the book about lifeboat conversions. He went on to write the delightful book A Taste for Sailing, in which he describes all his boats, lifeboat conversions etc. plus Patient Griselda, designed by Jack Jones and built at Rowhedge around 1960, I think. The lines, sail plan and other drawings and photos of this boat are in the book.
