In Lloyd's Register's "Sea-Web" database she was listed as "Continued existance in doubt" as of 16 December 2004. First time I've seen that notation on a vessel in Sea-Web.

Difficult to say what they have done with her, but i believe Phil's suggestion that she was used as a workshop or similar is likely.

Rather than being converted, my guess is that she was being used by the shipyard as some sort of floating workshop or similar. Cracking shot of a fine old ship, by the way.

I note that as Golden Fortune, she was very recently removed from Lloyd's Register.
