I am also working with a veteran who served on ML 194. After D-Day (Omaha Beach) ML 194 was modified and set off on a jo...

Re: RML 526

Dear Tony, A quick response to your post. Just to remind you she is W.I.P (work in progress) - Finishings are FAR from complete. I do not think it would be appropriate to enter into a dialogue on a open forum about the condition of 526 to a Ex owner who clearly has great affections for her (particul...

Re: RML 526

John, thank you for your comments. Glad you found the website. As you can see it is under construction at the moment so there will be some changes. I have more information to add. The email link is not yet set up so this does not work. I am hoping by the end of the week that it will be more advanced...

Re: RML 526

Hello Johnk, thank you for your reply. Yes - 526 is moored in Rye & Yes - she was quite a re-build. Quite a challenge at times but very rewarding. She is locally known as the 'Big Boat that goes up & down" due to the tides. Sometimes on very high tides she looks enormous! I am working on the website...

RML 526

To all those interested I would like to announce that RML 526 ( previously known as Western lady IV) is very alive and advanced in her restoration project. Much work has been completed to save her from that all too familiar graveyard for historic boats. We are working towards reinstating her origina...
