MARIA ASUMPTA was a regular in London Dockland's prior to her demise when she would winter in the West India Dock and undertake repairs.

I sailed for a time on this ship in 1986 in Canada, across the Atlantic in 1987 and for a few days again off of England in the early 90's. I heard this boat sank in Cornwall. Can anyone tell me what exactly happened to the captain and crew?

I took these photos of her on the river Dart in the late eighties, 88 or 89, but I could be a year out ither side. One fine looking ship, Regards Tony. (Thumb)
