Mail online report dated 6 January 2012:
"(While) being relocated to a dry dock so that its hull could be repainted . . . the historic vessel started listing by four degrees on the starboard side as they removed the mooring lines at the harbour, in Leith - causing a leak in (a) door seal."

I'm a bit surprised they are not getting her readied and seaworthy for the Diamond Jubilee this year.

Yes Dave I agree, it would be lovely to see the old girl in use again.
