Thanks Andy. I'm getting to the end now. Today I ran some rigging from my new bottle screws and it sets it off luverly.

The sun came out, so I set up the dustbin in the garden as a photo stand, but by the time I got the boat set up, it went in !!

I took a few pictures before it started to rain and all that she needs now is lower respray with red oxide and wire up the lights.

Thanks Danny. I was going to the lake this morning until it started to rain. Maybe soon. I have yet to do a float test and do not really know how low she will sit. I'd better take some extra batteries just in case.

She will have the regulation 20 minute sail then go on the shelf while I make the 'You Tube' video.

Thanks Dicky and Yes, she is willing to help.

She also said  "had I the next boat to build"  as she had the television programs worked out for the winter, and didn't want me around, under her feet. Cheeky girl.    {-)

I am ordering my next one tomorrow.

Was going for the maiden voyage of my tug this morning as it was sunny when I got up, 10 mins later couldn't see across the road for rain.

Cant sail next Sunday as I'm visiting my daughter in Hastings, so it looks like you will beat me to it.

Yes, It's lashing down here as well.

Reminded me to varnish the decks before I go anywhere near water.      {-)

                   Nearly there

Today I finished off the lighting. There are now over 20 Led's in the cabins and the Radar is motorised and working.

The wire bulbs have finally arrived from China (after these pictures were taken !!) so they will be fitted under the bridge deck as floodlights for the decks.

I've drilled out the epoxy windows and substituted plastic sheets and these give a clearer view inside.

 I shall be going to the water very soon,  If I can find the Prop.  ok2

Hey Mark
I would,nt rush round to Ken,s, he is going to need someome to carry it for him, so if I were you I would just wait for the phone call, %) I,ve seen it, and it is an impresive boat, I do know one thing, if he calls me I think I am going to be out for the day, after all I do have a bad back.
Only joking Ken :} you have done a tidy job on that one mate.

 4 sets please.

These are excellent for joining the rigging on a removable top sections, and I recommend them to members.

Yes, I got two reels of twin mini cable. Great stuff,  if you can see the wires in the middle.    :}    I have been using it for the lighting loom.   :-))

I'll put up some pictures and show how tiny it is.

Hi Mark
I found it  yippee.   %)  It  had gone over the side of the bench into the spare wood pile. I had to pull it all out and there it was.  Phew!

It looks lovely sunny weather today so I'm going to try a launch all by myself, away from prying eyes.  8)

I've just walked the dog up to the Canal pond to check the situation. Father Christmas is there along with a few people  in the canal museum shop, so I could have problems with "Kids".   {:-{

They have cleared the weeds and it looks so good I may go when sun is above the trees.  I thought I might take Imara as well with a big rope.    :}

I'm back from the pond. Smashing weather. Sun and calm (and freezing cold)

Here she is taking off from the jetty. I had the camera set onto 'still photos' and didn't realise till I came back in....  hmphh!! Never mind, we got into the wet stuff.

She sails a bit top heavy and nearly flipped over on the turn, so it was back home sharpish. I shall be lead lining her to drop the weight lower before I go out again.


All in all, a smashing boat to drive. A bit of a crowd puller as well. I almost expected to see Santa to leave his Grotto and come down to the water.  Pity the bloke who helped me lift her and broke the rear flag mast and trawl boards off.  <*<

Cheers

Ken
