Two years after she was built, Snow Bunting went to Dunkirk. Then she served as a patrol boat in the Solent until her first post-war owner bought her in a derelict condition. It took hundreds of hours and thousands of pounds to prepare her to cross the Channel and cruise down through the French canals. Now she belongs to V.S. North who lives aboard with his cat which jumps ship when the engines start.
