Si,

Im having Champagne in your honor. I broke the top off against solid Irish steel in a small ceremony in honor of your most recent achievement.

She is beautiful, certainly not repulsing.

Well Done, Thanks for Sharing

SI,

Thanks for the information on the sternwalk. I wasn't aware that it was removed.

Appreciate your support along the way.

Thanks Michael,

it has been 11 months give or take a day or two, rather that that rush it and do half a job.

Thanks again for looking in and your comments along the way.

Cheers

Thanks Tim,

I did fear she might look a bit a drab, but your right, she does look elegant in that scheme..

I keep saying this, but I do really appreciate your support along the way.

Cheers

Thanks Bryan,

I take that as high praise indeed, Being a Clydebank ship I take a wee dram or two to celebrate her commissioning.

Thank you for looking in and your comments and support, much appreciated.

Cheers

Thanks Dave,

Both for your kind comment and your support along the way.

Might be a week or two before I get started on something new.

Not sure exactly what, but watch this space.

Cheers

There was no stern walk to be removed. Repulse was not fitted with one. Just an FYI; congrats to you Si, on a nice effort!
