Simply amazing! :)

 I really want one but is unable to find anyone who ships to Norway :(
I have just inquired to Howes Models, the model is back in stock and available but they will not ship it to me here in Germany, they say the cost will be more than the boat!! So will have to have it sent to a UK address and pick it up next time we are over. It seems the model is a good basis for improvement, I think I will get one...

I do wonder however how you made the ropebased sack (dunno the right word) you have in front? is it something you bought or did you make it from scratch from thin ropes?
  They are on sale pretty often on UK ebay, cost about 5 for a set , two bow/stern rope fenders with 6 ball type side fenders, also "rope".  I`ve PM`ed you.

Just checked the rope fenders on Ebay (UK) and see that our own Mustang Mark from MMB does them in beige colour and with chains at about 8.50.

It has passed 28 pounds, not bad for a broken boat.  PS = we do not have a pound key on our computers, sorry for that. Mick B.
