...Hi Guys...

I have inherited a small part built wooden model of the small coaster that is now a Wreck in the corner of Bowling Basin...
The ship was once called SILVER RIVER & SUBRO VENTURE during her life...
If anyone can give me any information about this wee ship that would be much appreciated as i would like to finish the build...

...Best Regards...Norry Mason...
