The Compass Rose

The Compass Rose was one of the last commercial fishing boats to work out of the village. She was built for a Cornish family in 1964 and spent her last years working for the Bisgrove brothers of Lympstone who were whelk fishermen. Before Jason bought her in 2005, she had been sitting in the boat shelter deteriorating for years.

Jason bought the hull of the Compass Rose in 2005 and using his skills as an experienced carpenter and joiner, re-built the boat in his spare time between his work as a local builder. In 2010, the Compass Rose was ready to begin fishing in Lyme Bay.
