Built as a sturdy passenger boat, with a 65ft. all-steel hull, Queen Boadicea II was an ideal vessel to go to Dunkirk - providing always that the weather and the sea remained calm. Her 3ft draft was ample for the river Thames, where she started her working life when Mrs. C.M. Smith, her first owner, used her to ply between Westminster and Greenwich in 1936, but hardly good enough for crossing the English Channel on a bad day.
