    Default Fire on independent in ramsgate

    I've just received a report that the INDEPENDENT, formerly DH46 AND CN26, had a serious fire in Ramsgate and is a possible right off. Can anyone confirm this and give any more details?

    That sounds about right. The information I got was that it was electrical fire from accommodation. Apparently she had some work done on her recently and was going to be sold to Fleetwood. Insured for 80K, estimate for repairs 79k. What channel and program did you see it on?

    she's been written off.all electrics gone and possible a new wheelhouse needed but apart from that shes ready to go back to sea.a lot of smoke damage. A good
    scrub and a pressure wash be like new.
