The only one of Barlow's boats whose construction was not overseen by Charles Nurser because by this time ill health did not allow him to walk down to the dock.  Family anecdote has it that the dimensions are not quite right as a result.

Raymond was named after Raymond Stephens, the Managing Director of Samuel Barlow
