after many months of fundraising, making it from scratch, the long awaited funnel cover is in place. grateful thanks to all involved, especially Kieran, Graham, and Jim from complete scaffolding, for their help. the two new masts and some of the fittings have been ordered, and we await the delivery. the tug is looking very good at the moment, and we have had a steady trickle of visitors on board, including the late " chunky" woods daughter, who presented a picture to the cervia, belonging to him, and his engineers log, now placed in the engineers desk down below. Jack Simmonds also paid us a visit,and finally, the newly appointed Ramsgate mayor, pat moore and her deputy, penny webb, graced the wheelhouse in all their mayoral finery.
