PS KINGSWEAR CASTLE – A PERSONAL TRIBUTE
John Megoran is best known for his involvement with the Kingswear Castle and not just driving the ship as Skipper, but also driving the business to ensure her continued operation. This 96 page publication chronicles Kingswear Castle’s story – including how revenue from her new operational life sailing in an area bounded by Putney, London, Southend, Whitstable, Herne Bay, Chatham and Aylesford, plus grants and donations, financed further major restoration, including the provision of a new coal-fired boiler, sponsons, paddle boxes, fiddley, decks, hull re-plating and much more. Returned to her old home waters in 2013, Kingswear Castle now offers a new generation the joys and delights of sailing on the River Dart aboard a traditional steamship.
