PENDENNICK was then sold by Fowey Harbour Commissioners in 2008 to Izax Offshore at Lowestoft. Didn't seem to be doing much at Lowestoft except for getting a new paint job. She made a trip across to Sweden when it was speculated that she had been sold, but no, she came back to Lowestoft again. She has recently (2013) been seen moored in the Swale as per this photo by Ted Ingham.

Mmmmm She called at Blyth just after she had been sold and the plan was to tow Barges from UK to Sweden etc.

Nice to see she is still being used.
