Amazing photos, Michael! Who would have thought that she would ever float again. Wonder who are the people on what's left of her bridge.

In happier times on Dave's site

I thought that was very odd, the hull is in BR/Sealink blue yet Dave's site shows her having changed to black before she was overpainted white ... so now the white has peeled off (must have been a cheap emulsion!) and we are back to blue, not 'back to black' as Amy Whitehouse sang. So what happened to the black?
