    That's the problem with 35mm prints - no date, not like digital photographs.

    Just been reading the MAIB Report on her demise @ http://www.maib.gov....ielsen-text.pdf


    sunbeam and nimrod on the other side of the gut probably pair trawling , achieve behind the neilson and it looks like the golden days at the bottom of the gut in the corner so i would say it could be a lot earlier than that steve.  :smitten:
