I think their sponsons probably took rather less time to build.

I quite like that and especially the sentiment behind it. I wish them the best of luck :D

I'll echo Rob's comments. An honourable effort. And a boatful of fun to boot.

Called them on the good old telephone tonight to wish them luck. Amazing thing is the telephone. With onky the pressing of a few buttons you can actually SPEAK to the person. It's the end for email.
Sending them some BBP team kit too.

They thought they were about 1:1 until I pointed out that the real thing is over 25ft long. Too big to paddle on the river, they concluded. It's a great piece of work and all in a good cause so we'e donating a box of BBP goodies for them to auction off or raffle as prizes.
