No, she is too deep as it is, she just put on more weight than I was expecting, and to give her a good margin from capsizing, I would need to add more. Not to worry as I had a daft but interesting thought about making a floating dry dock to display her and any other little tubbies I build on the water but safe from foundering!

Ho well at least you've had the fun of building her, that for me is the best part I find sailing them once they are completed a tad boring after 30 miniuts.  {:-{

Hi Ian


Just found my copy of A Shipyard at War which has some fantastic pictures of the M-class under construction. Here is just two images from the book:

Thankyou Nick! It looks like Milne was fitted out as a mine layer.


I drilled holes for stanchions and fitted the masts on Tuesday evening and she is beginning to look, er Ready  :-)
