Update March 2023. Following the external survey of Llys Helig’s hull that revealed a huge variation of thicknesses of the steel as well as various patches and bodges to plug the holes a decision has been made. Currently an internal survey is underway to assess the integrity of the ribs
A beautiful patchwork of mixed media, years of neglect, 100 years of elements and painting over the cracks. Llys Helig is in a poor state. Some serious discussions to be had over the next few days on the feasibility of restoration. Next steps: pressure washing the interior of the hull
