A group of enthusiasts led by owner Rob Chandler. Touchstone was built in 1963 and until the early 1980s was mainly employed towing petrol lighters from Thameshaven to Aylesford on the river Medway. Since 1999, the group has endeavoured to maintain Touchstone as a working preserved craft. This is of course an ongoing endless project.
Touchstone serves as a committee boat for sailing barge matches and visits the Oostende voor Anker sea festival in Belgium each May.
