The Long Row 1895

This story of determination and endurance of Margate boatmen took place in 1895, written and researched by Mick Twyman for the Margate Maritime archive. It is about the Margate Lifeboat "Quiver"and the crew of 14 under skipper Steve Clayson, who rowed a round journey of 80 miles to rescue the crew of the Norwegian Barquentine "Tvedstraved" only to abort the mission to find out later that the crew had been rescued by the Harwhich lifeboat.
