Storm Damage

The Valentine's day storm managed not only to flood the boat shed to its highest recorded level but it also managed to inflict some structural damage to Shamrock. The constant movement of her in the dock resulted in the forward section of the port bulwark washstrake (top plank) and capping rail breaking off. Parts of her were found buried in all the dried reeds and river rubbish trapped in the hedge between the quay and car park.

Repairs to Shamrock are now well underway.
