    Strangely,I had booked the wife and I on a whole day cruise on the Waverley in August just days before the boiler damage was announced and all cruise's were cancelled, was supposed to do this last year for the good ladies landmark birthday ,our son had given us the tickets but due to the chemo had to postpone.

    Hope I'm not a Jonah.
    Donation made so hopefully next year.

    Managed to get a little time to myself and have managed to make a start on the hull ,strips are 20mm and 10mm -1.6mm plywood strips ,there's a few wee gaps but as the old shipyard saying goes "putty and paint makes a job what it ain't"
