  Despite a rather clumsy conversion in the 1970's,'Virgo' still survives and is moored on the Paddington Arm at Kensal Green Wharf. The conversion unnecessarily destroyed her original back cabin, but a sort of replica was constructed in sheet steel. Her engine hole, however, is still original, except for the roof, and the original engine is still in place. Hull sides are original riveted wrought iron but the elm bottom has been replaced in steel.
