became clearer and there were reports of two leaks - the water from which
was successfully being pumped out



                                                                                                                photo:  photographer unknown


Fortunately she is a well constructed ship and was able to withstand the storm
but as she was eventually towed away from the pier mid-morning,  the damage
to the starboard side immediately in front of the paddle box
(where she
had inpailed herself onto the concrete part of the pier
)  became apparent

She arrived safely at Ouchy harbour before the next storm and is now moored
adjacent to PS Rhône to await her turn for some further unplanned
much needed "Tender Loving Care"

So the brave old ship has survived "to sail another day" - but that is unlikely
to happen in 2024
