Well this is confusing.  Isn’t the video of a different and wooden Jasmine?  I presume “Humphreys”, you are from John Humphreys family (he was chairman of the IWA) and the boat’s owner.   And where does Clevanda fit in?  Always looked identical in pictures  to the original Jasmine.

The wooden jasmine was my dads first boat he bought. Then he was bitten by the canal bug and built the Jasmine2 himself at his factory in brownhills.

my dads name was Don Humphreys. 
im his daughter.

Don’t know about Clevanda!

I think by the style and construction  there is a link between Jasmine 1 and Clevanda .  I have no facts that this is the case to base this theory. I beleive it was John Humphries who owned Clevanda adding a different spelling to the confusion.

Can't shed much light on Jasmine, but yes, John Humphries (that spelling, also known as A C Humphries) was IWA Chair in early 1970s and owned Clevanda.
