Have this one on the go right now. Nice Pressie for the Birthday from the father.

 

Hope to have a smoke Genny installed once I figure out the wiring as I need to have it the fan wired to the throttle to produce smoke once the throttle is raised. Every thing is placed right not and not glues expect for the wooden bow plate.

Finally Launched today, Tide was a bit low in the Pond on Fermoy but nice day for the First Voyage. She sits a bit too low so a small Batter in the hold will have to be trialled.

Well pleased with this, 3 yearsit took and I love it!!

"Dirty British coaster with a salt-caked smokestack

Butting up the Channel in the Mad March days

With a cargo of Tyne Coal

Road rails Pig iron

Firewood, ironware and cheap tin trays"

Super little ship, George and deserving of a nicer verse than John M's famous verse quoted above!

If ye're in Lockdown, ye can get on wi' yon  "Quinquireme of Nineveh"

Quinquireme of Nineveh from distant Ophir,
Rowing home to haven in sunny Palestine,
With a cargo of ivory,
And apes and peacocks,
Sandalwood, cedarwood, and sweet white wine

Quick, I hear some of this stuff can still be found in Sainsburys...

Yes but if he had bog rolls in the hold the shareholders would be set for life! Better than cheap tin trays....
