All about Alice

Because she lives at Gun Wharf, Portsmouth, where she is the only AliceThames sailing barge, we tend not to hear much about sb Alice.

But My Classic Boat has a lovely film showing the mast being re-hoisted for the winter after the sails had been removed, with owner Alan Gick telling us about Alice’s history, the work done on her, and how he uses her now.

This is the link to the film.
