« on: June 01, 2012, 08:02:36 PM »



I think is will be a spectacular thing to watch this weekend ,I wish I was fit enough to go there to see the it, and especially the orange boat that I think may come in handy with 999 other boats there , and I hope the Orange Boat raises plenty of money for there cause.

looks like it will be a great day for all , we have the Goole tug wheldale  in the line up from the museum ,
mind she took two goes to get down to the thames , ended up in dry dock first time round for some unexpected repairs , apparently she blew a pipe and spewed her gear oil out .
But she is down there , here is a short vid from the bbc about her http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-humber-17990885 .
