Last I heard was that the new museum was on track, no expense spared. James Wiseman ( Pinkie ) retired skipper owner of the Nil Desperandum is also trying to get the powers that be to take over his boat, she is beautiful model and I think worth preserving for future generations to admire and let them know what the fishing industry was before it was criminally destroyed by politics and politicians, all the best Wully, Mac
