Another picture from one of Caroline’s
faithful listeners, Ron Hubbert (R.I.P) commonly called narrowboat
Ron. this is a photo of his narrowboat "Caroline"
complete with bell in bright sunshine tied up in one of

Tommy Gerrard is seen doing a
bit of "rust bashing" on his own boat with the
same name as Caroline's old ship Mi Amigo
Tommy is now looking forward to meeting the owner of this
other vessel to share some stories of pirate radio stations
from the past.
