Hi folks, believe me if its 1262 you are referring to, forget her.  Most of you will know my feelings about her as I have followed her history since she left the RAF.  When the museum got her  (as ROSENANTE) she was in a reasonable state and if a conservation programme was put in place, she would be a good example of the 60ft GSP.
Sadly she is beyond redemption - trust me on this.
FAIR WINDS AND A FAVOURABLE TIDE

Hi Donald,
The advert I saw was for Pinnace 1218 'Earn' for about 4k
Has 1262 not been broken yet?

Hi folks
Re 1262 she is still lying ashore at Irvine in a poor state with a broken back and a twenty plus degree twist from fore to aft. There are a number of beautiful timber boats lying in various states of disrepair and little appears to be done. This after all is the present resting place for the Garrick a tea clipper that is more original than the Cutty Sark. Those in charge do not seem to be very sympathetic as they have already broken an Admirals barge rather than give it to a good home.
May their voyages have peaceful waters and remind us of the heroism.

Hi there,
 
Indeed, Garrick/City of Adelaide? very much more than Cutty Sark just not as lucky, and some would say having transported people rather than tea, though not sure about that one. I don't know, said before so many great vessels and just not enough resources, albeit as discussed with someone else, Cutty Sark and others seem to get more than a good share of public as well as private cash, guess one could argue survival of the fittest, the ones who shout loud enough.
