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?
