Via a pm from a new member of the forum ;

Hi Sea mariner,
Recently joined the forum .Found your pic of St.Mawes.I have 1/24th scale model of Ionia after searching for info and drawings as I built her many yrs ago and she needs restoration.One option is to repaint her as St.Mawes maybe.Interesting that there are plans to convert her to a cafe serving devonshire teas This has been done to an old tug in Port Adelaide Australia. The engine casing has seating around it and the stern section has a canvas shelter to shade from the sun.
