To some extent, but time will tell. That said - I had a pint or three with those same Yorkshire lads the night before - the Vessicle was their Land Rover previously!

They seemed like a decent skins - for Yorkshiremen

It gets washed down with dilute vinegar, fresh water and then oiled after each immersion. Any exposed copper has to be replaced (think fans and alternator etc). It's been doing sea crossings since 2004. Melting Landy scaremongers be warned!
