Hi Dave F-You can touch the hull weather permitting-Tonka is also doing trips upriver

I think you can book a trip onboard the small former RN landing craft MV TONKA to get near her from JWD

Thanks Jim,
another sugar boat still out there is Captain Leonidas
the reason for not scrapping her was the remote location but the Chilean Armada put a light on her... out of sight in this pic behind the funnel. I'll dig out some more pics and post them.

Hi Cisco It's a Bird sanctuary now-Cost too much at the time-It's on a sandbank-No danger

Idle curiosity... why has she not been broken up?
