Sadly looking rather neglected in the morning sun, 20 May 2018. Maybe the museum is short of funds?

I thought I'd posted my photos but I guess not.

Shame if she can't be looked after, especially as a local build. Probably not many Wm. Gray vessels left now.

I totally agree with you! I took this in March and you can see the rust on the lower bow.
