    The Waverley is an iconic treasure for Scotland, the last seagoing paddle steamer in the world. She must sail again next year - particularly because 2020 is Scotland's year of Coasts and Waters. This presentation will cover the history of the Waverley and it engineering challenges. A well-loved steamer needs a major restoration. Over £400K of new funds is needed for this National Treasure to set sail in 2020.
