Launch

I was at the launch, met the guys that built the boat. That's them in the pic. They did all the carving and guilding and boat building.........and it was all done in a unit behind the ComputerWarehouse in Brentford.

Mark Edwards was the main guy building the Gloriana and believe it or not he's also built a replica wooden submarine that's on display in Falmouth at the Maritime Museum!

Submarines and wood don't go together in my book!

Have a look at this video, this is the run back to Putney. You will see the Gloriana being powered by her electric motor...

I'm thinking that if I was in the pub first, and had a few while watching the launch and then they came in, then chronologically it would be them that joined me? But let's say we drank alongside each other.
