The Leaving of Rachel II.
This 140ft boat has been moored at Red House landing on the River Ouse for many years and has become quite a land(or river)mark. Just after dawn today she left for a new home in Southampton which will involve a long voyage through the Humber and down the east coast of England. The undignified clouds of smoke are due to her diesel engine not having been fired up for a while. After repairs have been made to the pontoon new boats are expected to moor up in March 2005.
