The travelling exhibition, which has been curated by the Skylark IX Recovery Project which cares for Skylark IX, charts her story from launching as a pleasure boat in 1934 through her wartime service and final sinking in 2010.

The story culminates with her new role inspiring and changing the lives of people recovering from addictions across West Dunbartonshire.

The exhibition also celebrates the achievements of the Skylark IX Recovery Project over the last two years made possible by a National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) award in 2018.

The NLHF award has enabled the Dumbarton-based Skylark IX Recovery Project to plan vital work to help stabilise Skylark’s condition and deliver boatbuilding training for Alternatives Community-based Recovery Service and Dumbarton Area Council on Alcohol clients. The Project also delivers therapeutic arts and heritage projects for people across the community.
