Iain takes the helm of the 2100 HP Waverley, the World's last seagoing paddle steamer



Published
Join Iain for a very special episode as he takes a step away from the workshop to let us in on a little bit of his family history as he journeys aboard the Waverley, the World's last seagoing paddle steamer. A ship that has captivated Iain since a young age when he got to steer her at the age of six, Iain has been granted full access to all corners of the ship as he meets with several members of the crew as well as other important figures connected with the history of this magnificent vessel, as he shares just what makes her so special and why it's so important to keep her afloat as the last shining example of her kind. At the heart of her is the incredible triple expansion steam engine that magestically powers her "doon the watter", so join Iain as he takes the helm once again.

This video also features Iain's newly released rendition of "What a Wonderful World", which should be available on all the usual music sites under his name Iain Tyrrell.
