Visit to shell builder.

We left home and set off to see, our shell in build, three hours later we arrived in Sheffield. No major problems with traffic on the M5, M42, A42 and the M1.

We arrived just before the team broke for lunch so we had the workshop to ourselves, lots of photo's taken.

The work is exemplary, the skills of these boat builders is amazing.

Borrowed this from their brochure:

"Turning 10 tonne of flat plate into a work of art takes, knowledge, experience, skill and sheer hard work."

Having seen them working, on a previous visit, the above is very true.

Should tell you who they are, Jonathan Wilson and Tim Tyler

They are two of the nicest people you could wish to meet.

This particular shell is based on a 'Josher' but the aficionado's will see the difference.

She is also 'Birmingham square'.

The next time we see her, will be when she arrives to be fitted out.

We would like to thank all those that have left a comment, they are appreciated.

We will be visiting the shell next week (Thursday) will post again, with perhaps a photo.

Another future date is the delivery to the 'fitters' planned for the week commencing 10th November.

Not holding our breath though.

First post

This may not be interesting to many but it has taken us three and a half years to get this far.

There are many reasons it has taken this long, no particular person is to blame, just circumstances.

This blogging lark is all new to us but we will endeavour to update and improve as time goes on

All we can promise is that the updates will be regularly irregular.
