Drove down to Paul Tilley last night and slept in the back of the car with the dog again, must remember to take an air bed if I sleep in the back again (either old age has caught up with me or I'm getting soft
Paul arrived just after 7am, and when I saw the rib I did not recognise her she looked fantastic, Paul had definatly lived up to his reputation as one of the best if not the best tube maker in the UK. The grin on my face was from ear to ear
I was even smiling as I signed the cheque
After coupling up the trailer to the car I set off for Mobile Marine in Dorset, I think the drive there was one of the most nerve racking drives I have ever made, I was terrified when meeting oncoming lorries of getting to close to the hedges on the narrow roads and marking my nice new tubes
The engine was ready and waiting on the engine hoist when I arrived and the transom was soon drilled and the engine bolted on, Gary had removed the lower leg so that I could tow the boat back with the engine down.
Then it was homeward bound, still with a big grin on my face.
When I got home the heavens opened just as I was about to take some pictures
managed to get a few but they don't do the boat justice so will take some hopefully better ones tomorrow.
Tomorrow hopefully weather permitting I can start getting her finished, the date for engine's PDI and setup has had to be put back a week due to Mobile Marines work load, so have 3 weeks to get her finished now.
