We love our girls to bits really and they're top class riveters too but I told them I was going to add a really sexist comment as I took that pic then ducked out of the way. Even for bendy girls it takes some getting out of the boat to slap one of their male counterparts so I was long gone...

We've temporarily got a lot of the boat assembled at the moment
Yeah - because we're potless, so we've sold a photo opportunity to a major newspaper, it's fortuitous that our latest DVD is only days away and the shop is being revamped with lots of new goodies. Let's see if we can finish this thing without going bust. :(

That reminds me, Mike when are we moving her into the middle of the workshop so we can get the leading edge of her wings sorted out ? sooner we get that done the sooner we can get the under carriage back on ?!

The angle of that pic and the state of assembly has reminded me of something I mentioned elsewhere, way back when the project was still in its infancy: With the sponsons and spars removed, the resemblance with K5 is quite uncanny, although probably not too surprising when you consider the connection between the two.

The current POTD is certainly a very powerful image, it's almost spooky....................

It's nothing like as spooky as actually standing next to it. We were all shocked into silence when the fin went on. Donald showed his approval too by chucking one of my boots off a shelf onto the floor on Saturday morning while we were all standing there. Made a change from spilling the welding rods everywhere or stealing the bottle key from my welding gas.
