Another volunteer-led project success story that will see an historic paddler, laid up since 1981, returned to service. And I'm old enough to remember school trips on the Maid back in her 1960s heyday.

I visited the birthplace of the Olympic class liners in Belfast a few weeks ago, I was even lucky enough to get the Thompson Graving Dock to myself! The dock is an engineering wonder in itself, never mind the ships they held...

Funnily enough, even as a lifelong Titanic nut, when I saw the dock I thought 'Is that it?!' :lol:
