ESTRALITA as found
Contributed by Excelsior Trust
East Channel Punt ESTRALITA as found, abandoned at Dungeness
After a change of ownership ESTRALITA broke down off Dungeness on passage from Rye to Dover. The owners decided to cut their losses, and abandoned the hull on the foreshore having stripped out the engine and anything of value. The Excelsior Trust obtained and recovered the wreck as a project for their Yard in Oulton Broad where her clencher construction will provide valuable training.
