And a bit more!
At some time in 2004 BETTY is reported to have sunk at her moorings, while owned by Mike Baker, Southampton.
I suspect that he bought her from Branford - perhaps at some time in the late 1990s in exchange for the tug CHIEF

Thanks davidships, I new she was an old Girl class but not which one. Your post puts her there at the right time so I'm happy with that.
