Charterhouse was towed [by tractor] to her permanent berth next to the RNLI Fishguard Station on Thursday by Mike Iles and Chris Williams of Goodwick Marine http://www.goodwickmarine.co.uk/ and Phil Rees and myself. All four are members of the Charterhouse Returns Committee.
It is here that she will remain for restoration [with STENA’s compliments].
The position is 100 feet from her original  lifeboat station and slipway. The harbour was extended in the intervening 100 years as a result the original slipway would be 100 feet from the sea.
All passengers on the Rosslare Ferry will be able to view it as they dock at Fishguard from the afterdeck of the ferry or when leaving for Rosslare.
Charterhouse is so large that it can be seen from the Marine Walk at Fishguard!
