I'm glad you said that, the photo's don't really do her justice, the tubes do look better in person (honest) :-)

Just a few more pics of the ongoing tube cleaning (and a few of the view from the bar at Gillingham marina).

Gotta say - you've done Trojan work there. She was one seriously filthy boat before - looking good now!

Still a bit more work required, but nearly there :-)

Hopefully we can be back in the water within 2 weeks...that's the target anyway (so we'll probably miss summer I guess ;-)

Whaoooooooooo - what a transformation

I am sure you are very proud of yourself (and the RIB) and rightly so

Here are today's efforts, all the cleaning done now (hopefully)!!!

Next we have to get the prop back on and the engine serviced (ran fine last season, so hopefully just a routine clean)!









Also why is it now so awkward to link to photobucket, if I just copy and paste the link it no longer works?
