SS Nomadic is looking well and having a bit of a spruce-up. The ancient Caisson gate (top), built in 1867, sits in front of Nomadic's bow.
To a blissfully unaware cove like me, this "gate" is more like a plain, rather ugly, boat of some kind. Seemingly it plugged the entrance to the Hamilton dry dock, before permanent gates were constructed.
