  1. An upside down mould 11 etchells?
  2. When we look back in hindsight with 20/20 knowledge and start judging the decisions that were made, I think it is fair to say that at the moment most governments around the world, are doing the best they can and are prioritising the saving of life over economic pain. The idea behind social distancing is to minimise the amount of potential contact points between people as it is possible to be contagious for up to two weeks before you are aware that you have Covid-19. Every time you leave the house there are potential contact points, whether by accident or not. Cars breakdown, a
  3. Seen from your Instagram site that you are also doing work on your house as well as trying to complete the most meticulous rebuild of a yacht with a deadline weeks away. You are a glutton for punishment. If anyone needs proof of the phrase, "if you want something done, ask a busy man", they just need to reference to you! Good luck with it all. Thijs.
  4. FOP, loving seeing these photos of it all coming together. Having seeing all the earlier photos of the components being made (like the lightened storage hatch frames) it's great to now see them in place and get a better understanding of how it all fits together. Keep it up, just under a month to go. Regards, Thijs
  5. FOP, looking back from where you started, do you think you would describe this job as a grower?!?!
  6. is there still any doubt? Does a bear shit in the woods? Is the Pope Catholic?
  7. FOP, since I found this thread I have been following it avidly and continue to be amazed by the updates, I'm disappointed when I have to wait to feed my intrigue on your progress. I'm so pleased that you have managed to find some people to help you get the boat ready for this season, and considering how excited I am about seeing the finished project I can only imagine how excited you are. Please, please, please can you make an post a video of her, inside and out, when she's done, I would love to see the finished result. Keep up the good work, Thijs
  8. I have just read this thread and can honestly say that it is inspiring to see the work that you have done to the boat, I hope it brings you and your family all the joy and pleasure you deserve next year when you launch her. The quality of the work reminds me of one of the original 1948 Olympic firefly dingys that one of my best friends restored from the hog up. They might not be the last word in sailing technology but it's lovely to see these boats preserved. You only have to see the classics sailing in the med to see the pleasure they bring everyone. Good luck with the rest of the project.
