Luigiesilvia

All the windows smashed,rusted and rotten. An old trawler at Pipers Wharf said to be restored and put in a Museum.

Dont know nothing else about her.

Seen at Pipers wharf with the old Thames tug Barney once owned by Thames & Medway towage also in a terrible state. Info wanted on both vessels.

I am a South East London boy and know the Greenwich waterfront well. I worked at Pipers before joining the Royal Navy and used to row for the Curlew Rowing Club. I thought Pipers had gone and the site redeveloped.

Thanks phil.

No idea but its used as the main drydock. I could ask the owner for you.

it's a former Soviet boat ... surely there are much better UK candidates if restoration is the objective
