Hi Dave, I just saw your build for the first time & I must say I am very impressed, you have done a super job & your photos are super detailed too . It is nice to have people like you showing us the way & taking the time to give us so much detail. I see you on here a lot, always helping out. Thank you from a newbie. Mick B.
Thanks for the compliments Mick, we're all here to help each other. We never stop learning and if I can help anyone along the way Im happy to do so. I've been helped lots and have picked up lots of helpful advice on here. I'll be down Warwick with Our Lass 2 on the AT Boatyard stand, maybe see some Mayhemers down there, Dave.  :-))

now trying to salvage the shalona will be a hard task laying at 45 degrees and full of silt if we get her back she will be converted to beam trawl for brown shrimps

Well the rain has stopped any more progress today as I need to give her a coat of lacquer before I can do any more. She just needs the hydraulic lines for the crane fitting, ropes and chains fitting, trawl boards attaching. Some small painting jobs to do, also need the liferaft canisters doing but I'm going to get resin ones from the Warrington show as I don't like the vac-formed ones supplied. Just wondering what I'm going to do next, got a few kits in the garage I can be getting on with, hmmm, decisions, decisions, Dave.  :-))


Sorry but I just had to bring this back to the fore. Such a fine example of build quality and skilful weathering without over doing it.  8)
