Thank you Brendan. She shows the result of tender loving care while in Garden Island dry dock. I was lucky to catch her in between my swim and my coffee at North Sydney pool.

Magnificent photo of a magnificent Bark, Clyde! I was lucky enough to get on board during the building in Fremantle and after she was launched. After years of being a little weathered she's again looking as beautiful as she was the day she was launched in Fremantle back in 1994!
