A Ballerina II being restored by Jon Palmer, Liskeard, Cornwall, England
John Palmer contacted me by letter in June, 2004, concerning "Dancing Girl" a Ballerina II he was restoring in Liskeard, Cornwall which is about 44 miles from Penryn...
Atpresent we do not have any idea as to Dancing Girls hull/sail number. She is in reasonable shape in as much as all the GRP is good. The external work is mostly cosmetic. As for the internal it is pretty much a rip it all out and start again job. I have attached a couple of shots of her at her moorings. Hope you can view them.
