Our Wish List
Over the years since the SS Explorer was decommissioned, she has at times been neglected and suffered at the hands of thieves and vandals. Her fabric is sound and while she retains a lot of her original equipment, some items have been lost. Additionally, spare parts for a sixty year old vessel can be difficult to obtain.
The Society is always interested in obtaining any pieces of period equipment which may enhance the ship.
Our ship’s telegraph for example has gone missing as has much of her radio gear. Several armoured windows are crazed by attempts by vandals or thieves to break into her.
We will consider donations of any nautical equipment which fits the character of this old lady.
