With the gearbox in bits on the deck preparations are being made for the main engne to come out on Tuesday evening. However, where there's smoke there's .......Terry hard at it!

Another bent beamer derrick

The prettiest punt in the port - varnish still looks good!
Chloe T, look closely and you'll see the bend in the derrick.
A loory load of scrap and more to come from the Bryan D.
Sunday landing means the fish goes by lorry up the quay.
Terry busy with his torch...
and not so busy at croust - check out the junk food on the stool, obviously shopping for snack food these days with the better-half away over in Canada - won't be long before he joins her - at least then he'll be back in with the sandwiches!
An over exuberant Terry the torch forces some swift action from Clive on fire watch!
Sparks are still flying down the engine room!
A daily reminder in front of the office window as the next W S boat is scrapped.
Last cut before the galley top comes off.
Away she goes!
