The hull has had a good inspection and remarkably it has only very few small areas of corrosion. These areas will be filled with Defcon as we are reluctant to weld or replace panels.
Berylla will carry a battery on-board so a modern electric bilge pump (or two) will keep pace with any ingress of water.
There is a picture taken in 1935, on the River Seine where Berylla looks to be painted in two colours. There is some evidence of a dark red colour on the boat which would have matched with the original trim. We would welcome more photographs if there any available, (particularly of the dashboard).
A launch trolley is being made with four 8-inchwheels with rubber tyres. This will help with quick and easy launch and recovery, and will fit on a large trailer, flatbed transporter or container.
