I understand the boat will be moved in land to a theme park, at least the old girl will then be restored and given a new lease of life. How old will she be, sixy plus I guess?
The wheel house is teak, it was full of gear when I was last in there.
As we can see, the parts are mainly removed, safer and lower for a road trip voyage.
Rivited iron sheet plates, we were told she was gong to join a sister ship down in Australia but the voyage across with a coal fired boiler was impossible and a tow too expensive?
The stern of the boat sure dates her!
That propellor is nearly as far back on the hull as its possible to put it.
