Haven't been feeling to well this last day and a half. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
The 'Hole' (Command bunker) has lost it's appeal.
What would make me feel better and cheer me up at the same time?
I know, let's go check on the boat.
Overnight Eurotunnel ticket booked (42 quid - bargain)

What I saw filled my heart with joy /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

All the mucky balsa core & laminating business is behind us now.
Frank's started cutting the cork.

We're very much 'on-track' to achieve the May 19th launch date. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

That's great news.

You sure?
Your bloke is wearing exactly the same gear in every photo but 1 on your blog!

Maybe this is the Guapa version of the Truman show. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

But, in all seriousness, I am glad the project is holding to (revised) plan and that you go on to have a great season.

PS: I like the idea of replacing your rig with a Black and Decker Workmast. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Minimum wages - possibly.
But he's also on maximum hours /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Probably evens out overall

To be fair - the man's a craftsman.
Top notch build quality. She was strong before - now she's indestructible. A herd of bison can stampede across that deck without doing any harm.

I have a Bison Hat used for (among other things) deck structural testing. Its a carbon neutral process, and we are having a Spring Early season sale, and are able to offer the fastidious owners of Belgian Battleships a full survey for 4 Duvel.
