You are probably right Brian I sort of picked the date out of the air so to speak. I don't think she ever came back again I tried to get aboard her but a very young Middy chased me off.

Dave - had another look - the photo now attached was taken 27 November 1990 and the yellow van on the quay looks like the one in your pic.

Ex PHOEBE in Fareham Creek awaiting disposal. No date on my photo but I would think 1992.
