Jan,
I'm a relative newcomer to SN and have just come across your photo in the preserved ships section. Do you know if she is still afloat? What really intrigues as an ex-marine engineer is whether she still has her original engines and boilers. I'm going to start a Google hunt now to see if I can glean any more info. Thanks for posting the photo.
Steve
