A timber barge abandoned at Carbeile.
The owners of the Carbeile boatyard extended the wharf along the foreshore, Brian Jones saw the wharf being built and took some photographs (Photos 2 and 3). Along with the Reine des Flots were a cut-down steel-built Admiralty vessel, an unnamed trawler with port number SU-104, the yacht Roy Fra Masnedo, barge Fowey No. 2 and approximately four other vessels. The boats may have been cut down before being infilled because the area now is flat concrete, used for a boat park and storage.
We believe that this vessel is now buried under the wharf at Carbeile.
Thanks to Brian Jones for recording the fate of these vessels.
Carbeile Wharf, St Johns Lake Torpoint.
The remains of one barge can still be seen on the eastern end of the wharf.
