A boss from the ships wheel was raised from the seabed around the wreck of the 'Llama', Orkneys, in the autumn of 1999.
April 2000 - declared to Receiver of Wreck as Droit 349/00.
Apr 2001 - Have cleaned and restored the brass boss. Have also studied a number of other wheels and found a direct relationship between the size of the central boss and the diameter of the wheel and rim.
May 2001 - Bought a larger second-hand lathe in order to turn longer spokes for the wheel.
June 2001 - Waiting for some time to start turning new spokes.
