Nelson is alive and well on Vigilance!
« on: October 21, 2016, 10:43:41 am »

My model of 'Vigilance of Brixham' the last still sailing gaff rigged beam trawler to be built by JW & A Upham in Brixham in 1926. Often wondered what happened to our Nelson, a bit like Elvis - there are many out there who think he's still around? But who knows?
Did enjoy getting my hands on the wheely thing though! :police:
I may be getting older - but I refuse to grow up!

That's a great model Ship Worm  :-))
I've had the pleasure of a trip in Vigilance.
Had a few pints in the Vigilance Pub in Brixham also  8)

Last time I saw Nelson, he was stood on a big stone in London %%
