Carnaby for sale!

Looks like BW are selling their old workboat Carnaby by auction. Says it's a 1937 motor works boat. Looked it up on the GUCC site and it's listed as: CARNABY; No 134, Large Woolwich motor boat, built 1937, Regd at Coventry No 542, Owned by BW as a maintenance boat (2000) and based at Marsworth. Shortened tug format. Looks like it was once a lot bigger!
I wonder if it would be too mad to try and buy it.

Lucky me

A couple of days ago, I went to see my two kids (both in their 20's) in Oxford. My daughter's been there a few years now but my son's only just arrived after working abroad. By chance, his new job is in Oxford! As we parted at the end of the day, I looked back at them walking together up the street, chatting and laughing, good friends that they are. My heart nearly burst with love.
