The wreck of the Vadne

The wreck of the Vadne
This former Gosport Ferry now lies derelict in Forton Lake, Gosport. Since I last photographed her in March 2010, she has lost her funnel and what remained of her superstructure.

A little bit more of her history here: www.simplonpc.co.uk/PortsmouthHFC.html#Vadne

Poor ole Gal, though I'd be slightly concerned about boarding a boat called SINK. An interesting link, and a great wreck shot.

Thanks for all your kind comments folks. It's sad that lovely old ships like this are just left to rot, but I suppose they can't all be saved..............on the plus side though, they do provide some good photographic opportunies!
