Homage to the Black Prince


In a recent post I mentioned that there was an old Harborough Marine boat round the corner from us that was doing a very fine homage to the old Black Prince boats of the 70s. Here it is resplendent in blue and yellow although those bridge bars need sorting – were they yellow or blue on the originals?
And tell me something - whatever happened to the style icon that was the louvred window? Presumably removed at some point due to its unrivalled capacity to cause hurt and injury...

hehe - I remember them, although for me they were the brown and gold Anglo Welsh fleet, but still with the bridge bars and louvered windows!! Perhaps there should be a fan club?

Hi Steve

Fi off Epiphany will join as she and John had several happy holidays with AW! I think we should encourage some scanning of old photos to create a virtual scrapbook of those good old days. Should be some blackmail-able haircuts in evidence...
