SS Ryde (Ryde Queen) IOW

Good history here: http://www.psryde.co.uk/history/

Great old ship to explore, and It was the first wreck I explored, which satisfied a childhood desire to do so! A pity she has been left in this state, ans I suppose nothing can ever be done with her now...

SS Ryde is still in one piece (just)

Hi
New to site so forgive any mistakes.
Been down to the SS Ryde (Sunday 1st March).
It is in a sorry state but no one appears to be working on it.
Still upright. Took some pics, will try to post, Was interested to see the rudder built into the bow. This still appears in good condition.
Can't post a pic if anyone is interested please contact me.

There used to be masses of overtime on the Ryde when she was still in Railway service and the same two crews stayed in her to the exclusion of other staff. "She's difficult to handle and needs experienced people," they said. Suddenly the overtime ceased and astonishingly the ship could be handled by anybody. I had one day in her as Mate during her last summer.
The bow rudder was needed as it was the only way of steering when going astern and it was locked amidships when steaming ahead.

Stevo,
Yes, I remember Eric but it was a long time ago and I never met his wife. I moved to the Lymington ferries in 1969.

Hi,
I hope you don't mind the message, but I recently bought some shipping memorabilia and it had Pats name and address on the back. I know she sadly died in 2017 and I am trying to get some information on Eric's role with the Sandown.
Many thanks in advance

Simon
