Friday March 15th- Technical visit from James Mitchell and Ruth Davies- Maid of the Loch, Loch Lomond Steamship Company.

The SS Explorer boasts a a directional valve of very similar proportions to one that the Maid requires replacing. We have shown- and are lending them our own valve. Ruth will fabricate the pattern for the new part.

We got a donation of a ship’s clock- in need of some TLC.

It requires a new internal mechanism, a new face- and some serious cleaning. Colin is on the case- and once completed- it will take it’s place in the Officers Saloon.
