"#248p Toddy Wax was added by CvdL to the list of vessels built from this model because she was built on the moulds of #148p Our Mary and #149p Jersey Lily which in turn were built from model 101. Likewise, #268p Canvasback was added by CvdL because she was built on the moulds of #264p8 Sharah Webb which in turn was built from model 101." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)
