Hello Peter,

A-frame looks nice and shiny, and your garage/workshop looks about as tidy as mine!

I am in Colchester too, whereabouts do you take her for a spin?

Jon.

Half and halfTack welded it together after getting a self employed engineer who works from his house to make some joiners to couple the bends i had left over from a project i was envolved with last year and then took it to a welding company to do the welding.Drilled some holes in it this weekend threaded cables for the lights and polished it which took all day sunday

Hi Jon,I often go out from Levington as easy parking and access to sea also good pubs and resturant for pub lunches You have ipswich, wolverston ,shotley,Harwich.But i have launched from Brightlingsea and mersea before but found parking a problem mainly because i often go out on my own so to park to far from the boat causes many problems.
