I have heard they managed to free her off the rocks today and she is making her own way to a dry dock for further inspections. I think they were lucky with the weather having being pinned in to some rocks like that. I am glad she is ok as I have been following her progress from the start of construction.

I have some photos I have taken of her at various points of her construction here ........ http://www.yachtinguniverse.com/inde...viewallfolders Enjoy!

Cheers

Stephen
