The Paddocks Boat Company (Abbreviated to Paddocks Boat Co. or simply PBC) is an Essexian manufacturing company located within the province of Greater Danbury. It designs, builds and manages boats, most notably on behalf the the Imperial Essexian Navy. However, it also manages Poplar Nerva's state-owned ships (specifically of the Ceremonial Republican Navy).
Prior to the PBC, Earl Jack of Molrams historically designed, built and maintained most of the IEN's vessels, due to the accessibility to a body of water nearby, the space for building and storing such large vessels and the promiance Les Paddocks had in organised events. Most notably, Jack single-handedly built the CTS-01 Jaywick, a super carrier built on the 8th July 2018; the 2-meter-long ship can operate both fixed-wing and STOVL RC aircraft, and has been deployed on numerous training exercises.
Earl Jack founded the Paddocks Boat Co. on the 23rd January 2020 following research into other micronational entities that were developed for similar purposes. It's purpose, as well as serving the Essexian military and civil industries, was to further cooperation with other micronations through joint projects and technology sharing.
In the November 2020 MoD Keynote on the 30th November 2020, MoD Jack MP formally announced that the refit of the Muncey was underway, and when introduced to service as a carrier would act as a test-bed for future technologies, and be the first vessel to operate CAe Systems' proposal for the Joint Armed Forces Aircraft Program (JAFAP), the F-03A Heron.
Work began on refitting the only ship of Poplar Nerva's Ceremonial Republican Navy, the CRNS Pacific, on the 29th May 2021. Due to poor storage conditions, the boat was in considerable disarray - the hull was filled with dead leaves, soil and a brown sludge. Work on the Pacific is ongoing.
