Just heard (28/11/2018) that the hull of the Cervia is now so so thin that a hole the size of a football has developed. She is now sitting on the bottom in Ramsgate harbour, but fortunately hasn’t actually sunk because of the shallowness of the water. Attempts are now being made to carry out repairs and re-float her. It’s very sad for the volunteers who have given so much of their time carrying out restoration work.
