Onyx Mariner

Onyx MarinerThere goes the Onyx Mariner, replacement for the Humber Star which was recently raised from the depths.

I presume this is a temporary duty, while the Humber Star is being repaired.

The Onyx Mariner is much smaller than the Humber Star, so must do more trips up and down the river.

Not that I care about any of this really, but posts about slow progress on the woodwork are getting a bit repetitive.

    Speaking of Humber Star, is there any news on the dent she gave you? It's been ages now and it's hard to believe they haven't done anything.

    The insurance company have had a quote from me for ages now, still not heard anything back from them.

    Sad to hear, life moves on I suppose.

    I guess once a vessel like that has been sunk, the costs to clean her up inside and re-instate her are probably beyond the value of the boat.

    The work I've done on Lady Jane really opens my eyes to just how much would need to be done.

  5. I'd be very surprised if Humber Star is due to be scrapped, she'd up on the slip at Marchwood being UHP blasted.
