We have a roof!

Braving the weather John went to XR&D today, talk about life in the freezer, got to XR&D found the bog frozen and the workshop colder than outside, really appreciate that work goes on, working with steel in these conditions can't be easy!

The boat is really coming together now, waiting for the engine and Houdini's.   Really appreciate what the lads in the workshop are doing on our boat despite the weather conditions and Ali & Neil at Beacon Boats as they are working in similar temperatures completing the present boat so they are ready for ours!

My first visit!

Although John has been a couple of times, I have finally got to XR&D to see the boat being built.  It's coming along nicely and looks really good.  The lads are working hard but now have a deadline.  The shell will be moved to Beacon Boats for fit out on the 16th December.

and finally, despite his very traumatic week, Ben enjoyed his walk in Clumber Park this afternoon, running all over the place, with only a bit of a limp towards the end!

and so we did we, although it was still quiet foggy!
