From a marine website that I use, a summary:-
Old wooden boat, got caught in lock gate at Widnes but thought to be OK. Got out as far as Bar when leak became serious. Assisted to beach on Taylors Bank for temp. repair then back into river - beached close to Black Pearl but suffered serious damage - broke up and is a total loss. Parts given to Black Pearl. Nobody hurt. A person who looked at wreckage reported a fair amount of rot in wood.
