    My view on it is at least ' the ship ' is around for people to enjoy.

    They ' restore ' Spitfires from crashed ones using literally just the old makers' plate - purists may moan but again at least it's another Spitfire going.

    The Wingfield Castle looks OK in comparison. (not quite as good as in the linked pic). Unfortunately they filled in the dock after she arrived so trapped.

    Incredible to think chums and I were drinking in the nightclub ogling crumpet aboard her, seems 5 minutes ago - very sad.

    I expect she'd say the same if she saw me !

    I mentioned Ryde and old memories when I was last at the Folly; the chap I was talking to said " best not look " - so I didn't.

    That lady reckons Ryde is a restoration project does she - is she in car sales by any chance ?!

    That is a sad sight, I can just ( as a child) remember her moored to the hulk in Portsmouth Harbour in her Sealink livery.

    I sincerely hope that you are in better nick than she is.

    Those photos do suggest it is too late (for the boat). Better to spend the money and build the skills on a documented and careful deconstruction. Any artefacts and spare cash to be passed on to one of the viable ships......... Waverley, Maid of the Loch, Blamoral, Queen Mary.
