Our second visit to the Marian (Charterhouse)

April 23, 2009

Six members of the Charterhouse Returns group travelled to Porth Penrhyn on Wednesdsay 22nd April.

Phil Davies, Phil Rees and Steve Done in one car and Richard Davies, Bob Wheatley and Mike Iles in the other car.

We left at 6:15am and arrived at the Marian at 9:30am and then we spent some 2.5 hours in the vicinity.

The Lomas Family, Neil, Anne, Judith, Ruby and Dougie arrived to show us their boat.

We inspected the Marian and a sister lifeboat as well as meeting Scott Metcalfe.  Scott has a engine-box for us to exchange and will be lifting the Marian onto the lorry for us.

The main purpose of the visit was to assess the possibility of a sea delivery or a road delivery!
