PADDLE STEAMER KINGSWEAR CASTLE
REMOVAL OF THE OLD BOILER
26th January 2001 - The old boiler is removed at the Acorn Shipyard at Strood
One traditional coal-fired boiler for sale - one careful owner!
Off comes the funnel
A bare top to the fiddley
The old fiddley sitting on the dockside
The fiddley has now been removed and strops have been placed under the boiler ready for hoisting
Out she comes
An empty hole in the boiler room
A new life starts on wooden chocks in retirement
Does anybody want me?
