  1. She’s a beauty alright; I saw her being put back in the water a few weeks ago. BUT – let’s stay away from that word “best”. “Arguably” is right, each of the restored classics will have it’s coterie of admirers who claim their favourite as “The Best”. We can all surely agree that she’s ONE of the best?
