  fore end now 45ft tug 4/95; stern now fully converted 50ft motor .f.s.7/91 & 8/90 (following information supplied by Andy Price:- From what I can gather the original Dodona was cut in half in the early 60s. The front was turned into a tug for BW and currently is moored close to the bottom of the Watford flight. The back end (my bit) languished in a BW yard in the midlands until the 1970s when it was converted into a 45ft 'live aboard' with the addition of a traditional stern. The original butty stern now being the bow (complete with historic dent which can be seen in some old pics of the boat). The boat was at this time renamed Stanfold. I bought it from a friend about 18 months ago. He had lived on it for 7 years and had discovered the original identity of the boat (thanks in part to the aforementioned historic dent) and registered her under her original name. Due to BWs lack of permanent moorings she currently spends her time chugging between Leighton Buzzard and Berkhamstead on the Grand Union.
