    I notice that the boat has shrunk from 155ft to 108 ft and only displaces 100 tons, rather than its former 155 tons. Perhaps it will only cost £5k to re-float now

    Well, it just 'sold' for £15,100.

    What are the odds it'll be for sale again soon?

    What is the latest on this story? Has it been righted? Has it been moved? or has nothing happened?

    Oh, it wasn't you who bought her then? I went past last week. Still there. No obvious progress. She has rolled a bit more so appears significantly more than 45 degrees of heel and the superstructure that gets covered at each tide is going a nice shade of green.

    I hopped past this afternoon, on my crutches. The first time for about three weeks.

    Absolutely no sign of any salvage work, and, if possible, she looks to have leaned a bit more.

    Heard mutterings it might be going to a permanent marina berth 'upriver' at some stage.

    The ebay ad said that an agreement had been made with Bridgemarsh Marina, at Althorne, that she could stay in a mudberth there, for a year, for no charge.

    Whether that is true or not, I have no idea, but I do know that Bridgemarsh is not "about one mile" from her current resting place.

    It may be coincidence but some serious mooring anchors have just been laid in Bridgemarsh creak.......

    This is what I saw when I was down there last week. I think you’re right that it is leaning more now. A bit of a sorry sight, but oddly fascinating... if you don’t have any skin in the game.
