MASB 27

Postby Pioneer » Wed Oct 31, 2012 6:59 pm

MASB 27 leaves her long time mud berth at Swanwick. She was towed to Premier Marinas lift out in Swanwick, Southampton recently then lifted onto a road trailer for the trip to Watchet, Somerset. She will join the slowly
increasing fleet of the Child's family, located in Watchet.
Pictured here, Paul Childs, Owen and Simon.
