Are there any Carpentaria fans out there. I have just had a chat (via Skype) with Gary Ruaux who was one of the people responsible for building that wonderful bar. (Pint)

I was on Carpentaria when we took her to scrap in Pakistan. We were told she had been sold as a going concern but when we got there they told us she was being scrapped. We wanted to beach her but they wouldn't let us, made sure we were off as soon as posible.
