Cheers Galley Boy, i have seen her since she was sold by the RNLI, a chap called Morgan Giles did a trip round Britain in her 1996 and called into Thurso.

Wully--Just spoken to a friend about your Solent,she's still at Levington marina under a canvas cover,externally unaltered apart from a bow thruster.Internally she's gutted,but still has her Gardeners.Seemingly the owner (American?) has ran out of cash so she's never been touched for a few years,will send a photo ASAP.
