MV Thekla

interested to hear if the Thekla is still afloat. she sank at one time, raised repaired and sold on. last i heard she went to Bristol for conversion as a theatre or something. anyone know any info on her. I know her old radio set went on permanent loan to a sea cadet corp in the midlands some years ago.

Last time I was in Bristol the “MV Thekla” was in the inner harbour, and is still in existence as a venue for various events, with a web site http://www.thekla.co.uk/home/section1.asp
there is a photograph at this site
