Thank you for that clarification, do you know her original name before she was registered at Bideford, where she operated, etc? Any more spec details?

Thank you both very much for that; she should be around for a while, waiting for work to start on the Barge. I will go down again tomorrow and see what I can discover; all the best, Raymond
