Oh my goodness that is lovely  :-))   The boiler looks like it just fell out of the London science museum.  I reckon it'll need a good pressure test before firing it up for real.


I couldn't own a boat like this as my "clean OCD" would kick in and would ruin such a lovely thing. I hope it sails well for you  :-)
