I bought "Opal" in Birmingham on 10th May 1987. I believe she was built in 1971 as the data plate from the engine (marinised by Newage Marine) says it was built on the 19th September 1971 and supplied to Severn Marine, Stourbridge, Worcs. I Have done quite a bit to her in the 17 1/2 years I have owned her. I regularly move her to new areas of the waterways and at present she in on the river Great Ouse. I will update this in due course.
