Well just to keep you guys informed or what’s going on.

I will be going to the 1262 tomorrow ( it was going to be the weekend but iv decided to bring it forward) . I indent to remove the loose structures from the rear and remove a sample of planking to establish the frame condition, If I find that the surface of the frames are soft I will reconsider my options.

Providing the frames are solid I will begin to dismantle the rear end to enable me to transport her.

If anyone wants to trudge all the way up to Irving then you can give me a hand!

Hi Northeastuser,

 

Almost "forgot" the 1262 in all the excitement! you certainly have a job there, but not as "bad" as "my" D at Chatham, that really has gone, still awaiting response from the port authority, may not get one, but we shall see. All the best,

 

John

Hi folks,

looks like 1262 is bound for the pinnace graveyard as her new owner informs me that he has given up on her and is to break her up.

FAIR WINDS AND A FAVOURABLE TIDE
Donald

Hello Donald.

I believe the time I have taken to work on the Ambra will result in the 1262 being broke up. I am unlike to be in a position to do anything about her for the next few months and believe that time is critical for the museum as they need the space for development. In an ideal world I would be able to save the 1262 but the reality of the situation will probably prevent this.

I can hardly blame the museum as they have been very patient with me. I fully expect them to dismantle the 1262 if need be, however for all I know she may survive long enough for me to turn my attention back to her. I knew this going into the Ambra situation and to not regret my decision to help, despite the fact that it has cost me the 1262.

Admittedly I am somewhat relived to have the situation taken out of my hands. The 1262 was to much for me to handle alone. so I guess in that sense I have ‘given up’.

Re your cheque, id love to tell you it was in the post, however considering how many times iv said that to you I don’t think you’d believe me.   Bear with me and I’ll find out what happened.

Billy.

This is how she looked when first acquired by the museum, picture is from Tramontana's collection.

Hi there,
 
Many thanks for the pic Christian, what a very great pity she was just allowed to rot, guess many might have believed that a museum would take care of her, but certainly not always the case ie like the National Maritime Museum, who broke up the paddle Tug Reliant, now only a single paddle wheel left, turning by electric motor in one corner, a very sad sight indeed, re 1262 could they have not at least tride to get her to someone who actually cared? appreciate no one might have! just that way so much of our heritage goes.

Hi Clive,
 
Ah, so she is up for sale again, remember her from a couple of years ago as per the add, perhaps have her under boats for sale on the main BMPT site, albeit the guy would have to ask I guess, same old story, good intentions but then reality strikes, hope someone with the time and money, as ever, will a go, can be done as we know.
