Is good to find a photo of her. She sails nicely. I was onboard as C/O in 2008.

Nice ship, if it is a bit cramped.

Nice picture of this vessel.
It's nice to see this vessel in such good condtion checking my notes I have her laid up at Lowestoft in Oct-1991 as far as I know this is the first time she has moved in ten plus years.
