The Broken Maid

By moiral
Evening all. A quick upload. Was away to Loch Lomond for a few days, earlier this week. Had to track down the Maid of the Loch for sentimental reasons. My Dad took me on her when I was about 6 or 7. A day of great excitement for me. Now she lies broken and unused at a pier in Balloch. It will appearantly take over 4,000,000 to repair her and make her sail again. So far, over 1,000,000 has been raised and volunteers continue to do work on her.
Hope to catch up with you all over the next couple of days. Thanks for C&Cs on previous upload.

If the Tornado could be built from scratch I truly hope this fine vessel can be saved. Fine picture of a "resting" lady
