Did we mention that we’ve also been building a launch and recovery cradle?! One way or another this has been gestating for a couple of years and here’s the moment when it was finally sat on its wheels for the first time- and two of those are Donald’s originals. The cradle is a reasonably faithful copy of the original- all done from photographs by Mike. Ivanhoe Forge built the bulk of it, and we finished it off.
