certainly didn't look like this when she was in service,as with all the IOM boats this is their fate. :(

Like I said Oudi...death of a ship.

No doubt she will be reborn though ie she'll come back into the county as a myriad of power tools from China. :)

Maybe we will take her in New York to go with our sailing ships.

No, looked again, far too modern. New York has put millions into restoring the sailing ships for South Street Seaport. I put pics of the Liverpool ship 'Wavertree' up in the spring. She is beautiful now but was a wreck when they found her in South America

Thats weird that,Joe...I've been having a look at old postcards of most of the IOM ships and none have wooden structure below the main bridge?
