Hallowe'en : Heading for Spain, Summer 2019
Antoine Rambach has been in touch to say that he's owned Hallowe'en since 2011, keeping her on Lac Léman in Geneva. He's planning a voyage, summer 2019, via canals and the Mediterranean, heading to Spain. He's also sent in a recent photograph of Hallowe'en, above. 
Mysterious Hallowe'en

Antoine's message brings to a close the mystery of Hallowe'en's whereabouts. In June 2014, the boat had not been heard about for many years. A spooky green coloured boat was identified by Paul Leinthall-Cowman from a file I'd made of unknown internet spotted boats. Even so, back on the intranet she remained a ghostly presence that proved hard to pin down. It transpires that the photograph was from when she was FOR SALE in the Netherlands in 2011.

The Ewoud Bon Photo Album, Recieved June 2016
In June 2016 I received an album of photographs, taken between 2001, when Ewoud Bon 'found' Hallowe'en in Northern Ireland, and 2009. A Dutchman, Ewoud bought her and took her to the Netherlands - The album includes a photograph of her in the Stoboughtfberg yard in Enkhuizen, about 40 km North of Amsterdam. The album goes up to 2009. From the album I've selected a shot of Ewoud with family and friends aboard Hallowe'en.
