Looks like she has not been attended to enough, Terry!
Details and photo in better times last June

Built in 1977 by James & Stone, Brightlingsea (503) as a pilot vessel,
she has been at Goole since 2002, now with a pushing knee on her bow

Yes George she was looking trim last Thursday so it has the pedigree of a cracked pipe or sea cock with the thaw leaving her in this state.

All the best

Meant to ask, do you know who owns her now?

George, I think its the fella from York that bought and converted Dunlin and Seagull or at least I recall him being involved with her, the company was called Northern Barge Transport or something along that line ! ! He laid Dunlin and Seagull up and went aboard for Rix's, but this was quite a while back.

I mailed you a couple of days back with a couple of snippets for your Gooleships site.
