Hi there,
 
Great to hear you still have her, trust the slip way is Newsons! see the programe for 102 up, in London as I write at ADLS rally, Ramsgate this weekend, thence back to the Norfolk and last GY festival of the sea. All the best,

Yes we are still at newsons and would only slip her at newsons as I would be reluctant to trust a lift hoist operator with her hull. (I saw Spitfire in the flesh!!!)

We are now due out in mid september as several of the vessels on the small slipway ran overdue due as occasionally happens (not newsons fault)

I have been told that around november our Starboard engine is to be repaired by the engineer from Newsons and then she should be pretty much set to go. (not that we truely have anywhere to go to!)

But these are the joys of a liveaboard.

Hello there,
 
Indeed, having seen Spitfire on the forum and in the flesh post the excellent repair, quite agree that old wooden ships need great care! although your slipping is delayed good news that the yard is busy, many thanks,

Well we are presently on the newsons small slipway, very happy with what we found she has only needed a few anodes, a repaint to the hull as last years job didnt take too well and one small repair to the wooden doubler along the hull.

Im awaiting one Engine to be repaired and hopefully we will be up and running.

Well Like Clive, It is with much regret that I report the White Lady is for sale.

I've been unemployed for a fair time and my Wife's limited wages are not enough to give the poor old girl the attention a wooden vessel craves.

She's still in good shape so now is the best time to let her go on to another owner who can provide the preventative maintenance she could ever need.

However she is fully specc'd as a liveaboard, her paint work is presently a little poor.

for more details:

Hi there,
 
I am sorry to read this, again like the others, as you say hope that someone else will give her the attention you have, best of luck,
