- Poole, Dorset
After several months trying to rescue this lovely old boat from the mud of Poole Harbour she is finally on dry land, with only one broken plank and a few broken ribs. The fact that she survived more or less intact for so long, submerged, partly filled with mud and battered by gales, is a testament to her skillful consruction back in the 50s or 60s. Her 1/2 ton cast iron keel still lies in the mud but is bouyed and will be recovered soon.
