Peter Ekins

Boat Name: March Mole (now sold).

nb March Mole

Peter was born in Derby in 1941. Serving an apprenticeship with British Rail, he progressed to the Superintendent over the Warehousing at Derby sites. He is a keen collector of postage stamps and also a list of boats built by Charlie Fox of March.

As a child, Peter regularly attended the local Baptist Church but, as a teenager, strayed. On marrying, Pam encouraged him to attend the church again and as a family they became very involved. Pam was the secretary and Peter the Churchwarden.

When he was growing up, Peter spent a holiday with his family on the Norfolk Broads. Since then he has had a love of the waterways. It was a chance visit to Fradley Junction in 1995, when they saw a boat for sale, that Peter and Pam took the decision to investigate further and this led them to purchase March Mole.
