I grabbed a few pictures when I was passing it last year.

Excuse the quality, taken on a camera phone and not retouched or enhanced.

Yes the car in front of it is mine, does give some idea of the size.

Many thanks to all who have viewed this topic/or replied.I have worked on & driven both the ones in Hunstanton over 14 years. They are both used as sea going passenger vessels, YES you can ride on them. The roar of 2 12.8 V8 diesels singing together is a wonderful sound. We took one of them across the wash to Skegness in August. For those who want to know more about these amazing machines send a PM & I'll tell you all about them. Why did I ask the Question? Only that my knowledge might help the owner of No67. Skylarc.
