During Spring 2012 light vessel PLANET has been on the move. During March she moved further north along the wall at Canning Dock towards James Street, she was still on that berth during the first week in April. However, on the morning of Saturday April 14, she was noted to have been moved into Canning Half Tide Dock. It is not clear what the future holds for the LV PLANET - there had been a report on the BBC web site that her owners after having traded her as a cafe during part of 2011, were seeking to convert her to a floating hotel. Whether this move of to allow the conversion to take place is not know, but she is now berthed in a secure quay area to which the public do not currently have access.
