Very many thanks for pics, Mark Bamford is the owner of Tamahine Shipping, his father, Joe (JCB) Bamford had an all aluminium yacht built at Southampton by Thornycroft.

Thanks for that Guy's! Smashing picture of her on the Fal. They certainly keep her clean, given the time that she has been there.

I had no other interest except a facination that she was being kept so well, albeit seemingly unused. Full praise to her owners and I hope she is around for a long time to come.

She is still there and in pristine condition as of yesterday. Unfortunately, the ship berthed close astern wrecks the picture. I did not take any shots onboard, but I did not see a speck of rust anywhere.

A ship laid up is no longer a living creature!

I don't know what the fees are these days for laid up ships in the Fal,but it was the cheapest in the UK if so it my be cheaper than parking a caravan or going to a camp site for the hols for the Bamfords and guests.

I have heard that pilotage and tug cost are a minimumof abround GBP5,000 each way. I suppose that is peanuts in the shipping world?
