Conservation Progress - November

Penelope II is now the main focus for the Conservation team, who are restoring her ready to be used for boat trips when the Museum opens.

Penelope II was built by Borwicks of Bowness for a local family and used mainly to follow the Royal Windermere Yacht Club races. With a straight bow and cruiser stern, Penelope II looks like a traditional Windermere steam launch but she has always run on a motor engine.
