Think it was her I caught sight of on TV local news (BBC north west) last week working on a bridge refurb, there is that many add ons now it`s hard to make out. Funny to see this crew using the wheelhouse like we did as the main mess. Tv set starboard side of the wheel house away from telegraphs, ariel fixed to spotlight for altering reception. John
