She looks like a fine hull to me, lots of bow dead rise, looks like a working lass.
Maybe the crew hit the pub, stayed a wee bit too long and missed high tide.

Honestly I am all about making old stuff work well and getting value out of things long forgotten, but this seems very irresponsible. If they can't make it into the sea what makes anybody think they will be safe out at sea. They apparently have no knowledge of tides or sand. Yes the hull and tubes looks useable but not if ya can't get on the water 😱

Well I suppose if you give them the benefit of the doubt... Perhaps they were only planning to test the engine?
