‘The Leven Cruising Club is trying to find a home for the Skylark IX.
‘The Skylark IX played a vital role during the war during Operation Dynamo, in which she rescued more than 600 soldiers.
‘She is thought to be the last original Dunkirk Little Ship in Scotland.
‘We have been in contact with our local council with no avail. We are offering
her for the sum of £1 to anyone who can raise this historic ship and give her
the love that she deserves. I personally pledge that if you do save
this precious ship I will campaign endlessly to raise funds for its restoration
