Its pretty bad, but not too bad

Paul Stevens sent his report in. These are his conclusions:

Robinetta is in sound structural condition insofar as sufficient structural strength remains. However this survey has identified some general deterioration to structural members and fastenings, and it should be borne in mind that any dismantling of this type of vessel inevitably reveals some further deterioration. However for her age she is in satisfactory condition and with normal maintenance will continue to give good service. She is a very unusual design with an interesting and well documented history and as such deserves some time and money spent on her now to secure her future.
