    Should have put this one in first. This is where the wind starts to take her and she starts misbehaving - badly!
  2. Tight squeeze.

    Close manouevering from Meeching. Note the harbour wall at the bottom right. Clearance at this point was around 3 - 4 feet, sometimes less.

    I knew I had some colour shots of this salvage. Here, Meeching is shortening the tow, having got her into the bight of the breakwater. The fun was about to start. This pic was taken from the old West Pier lighthouse and signal station (long since gone), hence the ropes at the top right.
