As a result of the VIC 27’s boiler having been condemned, the current restorers were obliged to tow her from Ardrishaig basin through the Crinan Canal in October 2008.
This voyage marked the start of the filming process. (visit Caledonia TV’s website to see this film by clicking this link) The restoration team and film makers were delighted at how, even in her ramshackle condition, the puffer drew enthusiastic crowds as she was towed along. A good omen for the future!
