Using the VectorMap
Having re-projected the VectorMap shape file of the area, I selected a group of lakes and ponds in the shape file using QGIS and saved them as a small shape file. Next a little python scrip was thrown together to extract all of the polygons and change them into an osm file to import into JOSM.
There were a few things to change, the river Hull needed to be sorted into riverbanks, some of the small streams needed to be joined up properly, but really it was very easy, and much better than tracing the ponds.
