I was on the boat from December 1985 until some time in 1989 can't remember which month, then spent some time in Dover after the salvage. The Picture is probably early 1988 as no original mast mast stays visible & working on the second temporary antenna; trawlboard lifting boom supporting the liver pipe front antenna support, just visible against the ships foremast. I think we were discussing the imminent delivery of 'Ronans Erection', the fibreglass Valcom horror... Mike Watts
