She's not for refit, just somewhere to park for Xmas prior to next job in January.

Thanks for the reason, I thought she looked nice and clean. Presumeably A&P charge for "parking" - is there no free parking in one of the Dockyards ?

WAVE RULER currently anchored in Conwy Bay awaiting our arrival in Liverpool tomorrow. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all in SN.

We passed our Final Inspection with flying colours! 2010 is scheduled to be a busy year deployed away from the UK throughout.
