Portisham is now in Balbriggan, Ireland, as a liveaboard and pretty much seaworthy.  Completely new superstructure, and modern engines and gearboxes.  Wood is in excellent shape with minimal leaks other than deck.
  Further info on request.  google maps satellite shows her here, and at my last look, also in Pembroke Port.

Hi there,

Ah, great stuff, yes noted last re decks, can be with a wooden decked ship of course, advice we have at the Paddle Steamer Medway Queen is to keep wet, daily dose of water from a hose pipe system, good caulking, Medusa HDML laid ply sheets then over-laid with deck planks, not sure how that is working, hopefully well, but as I say, problem faced by many ships and vessels, only as per above, daily wetting, which would have been done in service by crew/company, to keep deck tight not so much to keep clean but that was also a point, apart form keeping guys busy......

Regards

In time, I will seal with Sika deck caulking.  Actual wood is mostly in good shape.  Some is coming apart rather than rotten.  Only 2 significant rotted holes in deck are about 15" each side of the lazarette hatch, and 6" diameter as though there had been something bolted there.  No bolt holes though so I am slightly puzzled.  Top 2, maybe 3 outer planks of hull are quite rotten behind rubbing strake.  Some of inner planks too.
I have been saturating the deck with linseed oil which I have found is far cheaper (1/3rd of hardware shop price) from an agricultural supplier as vitamin supplement for horses.
  The hull is tight except for Starboard lazarette.  Many old screw holes going almost through, plus complete lack of caulking and, I suspect, rotten calico.  It looks like there was a big protective plate attached there originally, but removed before my time.  I sealed between the planks with an expanding adhesive that is water tolerant, for now.  Port side is similarly rough, but not leaking.  Transom to hull interface seems good.

Re: Rapisham
Are you sure she is Calypso ?.  The only minesweeper connection I have found is to a WWII minesweeper.

Re: Enterprise.
She spent several years in Carlingfors, being used by Tom Newman (I believe) as a houseboat.  Then some time anchored off Warrenpoint/Rostrevor where she broke her moorings, beached, and was ransacked.  Earlier this year, she was in Kilkeel for a refit in preparation for a move to Australia ... again, I believe.

Re: Birdham
She was in Rochford as a liveaboard as mentioned.  Recently changed hands, the new owner then sold the rudders and props, confirming her long term residence there.  There is another ham just outside the boatyard there.  She has nothing of the chartroom/bridge, nor any machinery left.  She is a family residence with all accommodation below deck.  I have just noticed on google's satellite pics, that this boat now has a cube on deck too.
