    As you can see from the picture she was very happily sitting in a
    wooden nest at Buckler's Hard boat yard on the River Beaulieu when we
    visited in August. She doesn't look like she intends going anywhere
    soon.
    
    Also attached is Chichester's chart of the S Atlantic with positions
    marked. The symbol would suggest these are daily position fixes but
    perhaps some were DR? Also a map of the whole voyage on display at
    Buckler's Hard Maritime Museum

    More pics and some text on GM IV on Museum web site
