Joseph T MN9 was a 31ft Barr smack built in 1901.
Built for Mr. Joseph Taylor, during the Great War she was sold during the First World War to a Heybridge man who renamed her ‘Frederic George’. Shortly after the First World War, the Clayden brothers of Maldon bought her and worked under sail until 1964. A small motor was fitted during the Second World War. The well-known writer of the Essex Marshlands, James Wentworth Day, has been on many a coastal adventure with the Clayden brothers and ‘Joseph T’.
