or cousin or just compatriot . . . . which would place this in what waterway?
Waver Three is not my spelling, but . . . someone else’s, for which I’ll add the link soon.
But here’s the story. The vessel in the photos above were sent to me recently by Niek , a native of the Netherlands who followed the trail of love south to Argentina, where this vessel was recently refloated. To see what Granadero (ex-Meta Ipland) looked like before being raised AND before sinking, click on this link and plod through the Spanish and German. As a Dutchman living in Argentina, it’s easy to understand how Niek is interested in this century-old vessel built in his homeland.
Click on this link and then do a “find” for the term ” salvemos al granadero” and you’ll read an interview in which a Ruben Roderiguez is not happy that Waver three (sic) made it out of Rio de la Plata.
Good to know for us, the custodians of Wavertree.
Niek . .. thanks for the photos and story.
