Storm Imogen did manage to lift the workboat ‘Edgcumbe’ off her support wedges on the boat shed slipway and move her onto the grass at the side of the slipway. Luckily her bow was secured to the boat shed and she did stay upright.
At present the crew spends most of their time in the boat shed close to the log burner. They have not exactly been idle though, much time has been spent in the preparation of the rigging of Shamrock, her anchor and rigging blocks have now been painted and varnished as required. Also a new hold guardrail is being manufactured as the old one was found to be rotten and has been consigned to the log burner.
