  1. Hi, I’m trying to locate the Scalpa and saw your pic of her from 2012. She was my grandfather’s boat and I’d love to find out where she is. Thanks for any help you can provide!

  2. I don’t know, I’m afraid. Waterways Ireland recently commissioned a survey of heritage boats on the canals and Barrow (downloadable at the bottom of this page); it didn’t report finding Scalpa but did say that many of the boats I had photographed have disappeared in the last few years. Some boats at Shannon Harbour were hauled out and stored in the Waterways Ireland yard there, but I don’t know how long they were kept. You might try asking on the IWAI Forum to see if anyone has any information. bjg
