I’m afraid Mat that is exactly what you will see, work on demolishing the deck fittings has already started and should be finished next week after which she will be moved and broken up.  What is not generally known is that she has been broken into on a number of occasions and much of the original navigation equipment removed.  Latterly whilst removing anything brass, holes were left close to the waterline, which if she took on more water would have almost certainly resulted in her sinking.  Considerable efforts have been made over the past seven years to save her but the attitude of the owners and it has to be said the Broads Authority, have made this impossible.  Sad days for all those involved in the process I’m afraid.

Bill.

Subject of the post aside Bill, I do hope this is and indication of a change of heart, and the first in a resumption of informative and amusing posts.

I went past her on Tuesday morning and took some last photo's, which clearly show the process has already started.
