Whilst on my visit to Dundee to setup at Discovery Point, I was delighted to see for the very first time the former lightship The North Carr.
The North Carr is currently run by Tay Maritime Action (Taymara) and is looking for information from former staff or family members, any historical items or documents relating to this wonderful peice of our maritime history.
If you can spare any time to help bring the ship back to life they would appreciate your time. Do you have electrical, engineering or painting experience this would all be of great help.
I was delighted to be given a special tour of the ship on the day and very impressed at the condition of the engines. Thank you to the team at Taymara for this opportiunity.
Anyone interested in the historical ship should visit the website www.taymara.org
The team would be delighted to hear from you. Please help spread the word!
Discover Thomas Smith, Robert Stevenson, Thomas, Alan and David Stevenson, Robert Louis Stevenson, Lloyd Osborne and more with items from the Following The Lights Collection. The exhibtion starts on Friday 8 February and running until 28 March 2019.
