Bacchante/Wellington - Last Pictures

These excellent photos of Bacchante/Wellington's preparation for her new role have been provided by Marco Zeeman, project manager of the SinkF69 project, Michael Brown, Scrumpy Orchard, Adrian Booker, Tony Kay, John Williams, and Peter Wells and Anne Bilton, both of Wellington. 
The funnel and foremast stand proudly awaiting collection on Te Papa jetty three weeks after the sinking.  
Maybe we could arrange a rabbit run with Commander BRIGSTOCKE and a few old oppos to regain what was ours ready for the 2006 Reunion?

Interestingly on departure from Wellington Airport if the sea is calm and the flight path favourable you can see the ships' silhouette under the water. For the best view PISO, bit like POSH but Port In Starboard Out, and hoping for a favourable northerly wind in and out and the best seats are in front of the wings. 

Yours aye, Scrumpy
