After a while as a houseboat (203-2008) at Hoo, LV 95 was bought by Ben Philips, moved to Trinity Buoy Wharf, East London and converted to a recording studio. A bit surprised that our Thames members haven't caught this well-presented 1939 lightship over the last decade.

Two videos - not much about shipping, but give the flavour of the conversion and of what goes on now that Soup Studio have moved in:

50 years ago the forward hold was filled with foam (for added buoyancy?) - this is how you tackle that if what you need is a new office: "Big Ship Foam Mining - Renovating a Proper Boat"
