I found her in Sutton Harbour, Johnson’s Quay, in 1982, where the first photos were taken. She had tied up along the quay at high tide. When the tide went out the ropes weren’t let out and when the tide came back in it went over the gunwales.
The photo below is of her in ‘Millbay Docks’ taken a few mouths later with all her superstructure gone.
