Noggin : A Maltese Restoration
In 2010, Noggin was in Liverpool Marina having been acquired by a new Austrian owner on the south coast of England, around 2006. She'd been yard maintained to a high standard between 1990 and 2005 as part of a charter fleet. The new owner had sailed her via the Baltic to Berlin, then via canal through Holland to the Rhein, down the English Channel and into the Irish Sea to Liverpool. The plan was to next sail the west of Scotland, through the Caledonian Canal and finally along the east coast to Clacton-on-Sea, Essex.
