Others are at the beginning of all that work of repair and restoration, as is our guest of this week.
The hull under water is still very good, given the age of over 80 years.
The side of the aft cabin, however, is in a sorry state. To repair this is not just rough steel work, as you will see after following me inside.
All this stunning woodwork comes totally unexpected and is really overwhelming.
Right behind this panelling is the rusted-through steel outside. Great care nust be taken not to damage this beautiful interior during repair work. The wooden bits probably need to be taken apart.
To complete our grand tour through the tiny interior, here is the door to the bedroom...
...containing two double bunks, made to the size of people who lived eighty years ago - and were much smaller on average than we are nowadays!
