Hi there!

Just joined this forum, seems like a nice place for like-minded people who simply like ships and such.

I am restoring and old lightship here in the UK.

Anyway, glad I found you guys! (Thumb)

Best regards
Jan

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Jan.
Sounds like an admirable project and one that our crew would enjoy hearing about.
Find your way around the ship and enjoy the voyage.

Hello Jan, and welcome...Please tell us more about your lightship. It isn't the LV18 by any chance? Andy

Hi Andy
No, it was LV14 as registered by the Humber Conservancy Board, NOT Trinity House. She replaced the old SPURN lightship (now moored as a museum ship in Hull) in 1959 and remained in service until 1985.
She's a lovely ship with a totally unique foghorn that is placed on top of the wheelhouse.

Restoration is full progress!! (==D)

Thanks for that Jan. Does your restoration scheme have a WebSite so that we can see what your up to? Andy
