Before Restoration

Astonishing Restoration to be Revealed, Autumn 2016
The above photograph of Mist, taken in 2006, shows that, although abandoned, she still retained her shape. Even so, it has taken skilled shipwright John Krejsa nine years to restore this craft as a retirement project. The results of these endeavours are to be revealed in the Autumn of 2016. We have the 'before' picture; the 'after' is eagerly anticipated. The full story of Mist being found and rescued is on the Albert Strange Association website, linked to below.
