Thank you gentlemen, both Dan, and to nhp651 for the larf!   {-)

I am planning on winning the slowest ever build title!  :-)

Though, perhaps maybe not as slow as this 1:1 rebuild of MFV BF494 'Pansy', an old Motor Fifie Conversion
An old Scottish herring drifter with a new lease of life...  http://bf494.co.uk/
quite an interesting read.. and perhaps some of the pnotos may prove useful.


a bit of work to do


back to life


an old colour photo with three of the type

Cheers, and fair winds to you both,

Yes Mark is making a good job of restoring her Klink. The fact that he is trying to retain most of her original looks is really good to see as a lot of "restorations" basically end up looking like someones dropped a porta-cabin onto the deck....

With enough Bovril, we can do anything!
