I've looked into the BG many times before but haven't come up with much more than anyone else. They did a major renovation in the late nineties (1997, 98) with the boat sitting high and dry, posting several pictures in the process. I've seen several You Tube videos of the boat, including some decent video of the engines while underway. I was once told the engine face plates had been polished so many times over the years the lettering was considerably worn away. I always wanted to establish a correspondence of some kind with a crew member (especially an engineer) to see what sort of experiences they have and, possibly, some helpful hints to similar equipment.
