  1. Excellent video. Are there any plans to return the boilers to operational condition? Once the hull is in a good state perhaps.

      hello Daniel
      unfortunately there are no plans to get the boiler back up to steam, lack of funding is the main reason. currently we have a handful of aged volunteers who assemble every Tuesday morning to carry out maintenance at their own expense. it is sad that our heritage is being ignored this way so that future generations will not be able to understand and appreciate the past maritime history. thank for your enquiry. regards mike houckham chairman CVC
