The photographs below are by Brian Reade and show the initial barge operation, the sinking and Waverley being moved over it. Unfortunately the light conditions were not sufficient to enable recording of the barge lift.
The time lapse photography of Waverley’s lift out of the water did not happen due to the operation starting in low light and being completed in darkness. We do hope to have the re-floating operation captured though.
