It has been an exciting week searching for the boat again.
It looks as if the uncovering in 1938 has caused a lot of the exposed timbers to rot but samples of the wood and iron have been taken for analysis.
The analysis that will hopefully be able to age the craft.
We will release some image of the investigation on these pages soon as well as a complete write up of the week long investigation.
