Hi Neal

Lovely looking boat. The time spent was sure worth it. You made it look superb.

What sort of construction is it please. Was it difficult ?    ;D

Cheers...Ken

Nice job, ice breakers have come on a bit since I was in the Gulf of St Lawrence. There was a program on Discovery channel last nite about Canadian icebreakers, 'how do they do that', they may repeat it who knows?
