Sorry cockerhoop but I can assure you that never happened. We (H&W) did install a lot of pig iron and concrete as permanent ballast but this was a design feature.

Happier times lay ahead after that picture was taken. Far better than seeing her broken up. David

You can plainly see the aluminium upperworks there.A very interesting shot indeed.
