Pete Devrell has come up trumps again! Last Saturday he went along to Abels Shipyard in Bristol for the Rededication of Medway Queen. Video footage shot that day has been put onto YouTube and can be viewed by clicking the following link http://youtu.be/UrnT1zG2W0s some stills from the video appear below.
The last time that I saw MQ, she was very much still a skeleton of frames and stringers with plating up to the waterline area. Looking at these pictures, she is well on the way to being ready to be towed around to Gillingham where fitting out will be completed.
Original parts refitted to the new hull
