After leaving Gloucester Semington was moored on the Severn level of the Avon, between Tewkesbury Lock and the A38 bridge. Unfortunately, probably sometime in the late 1980s, Semington was left on it's side in the river after it was caught on the bank when the river fell after a flood. I have a couple of photos of the sinking, somewhere!

  11. The 'protective paint system' was a couple of coats of Comastic and they have obviously afforded a certain amount of protection to the base plate. It will be blacked again when its next out of the water.
