Almost ready to go now. The move to Beacon Boats for the fitout will be on Tues 18th November. Unfortunately, it looks like Rog won't be able to get the day off so it will be up to me to go and record the occasion for posterity. I'm not very good with a camera (either behind it or in front of it!) so I think I'll just take loads of photos and hope that there are one or two that are fit to go on the blog. Watch this space....

We think that the little Cornish 'piskie' is absolutely beautiful, and we are planning to ask Sheila to paint something similar on Windsong - not sure what yet, but we have some ideas floating around! You'll just have to wait and see....

The shell of the grand boat Windsong should be moving to Beacon Boats around the middle of November. The fit out will then commence.
We hope to be able to be there for the arrival and get some photos to record the event

'Superbuilder' Gaz almost managed to avoid being photographed this time!
Chris & Lee - Lee is not in overalls because he's recovering from a back injury and only allowed to do things like paperwork and make tea
After leaving XR & D we then went to Beacon of a 'fix' and to have a look at the progress of their current boat, 'Merryweather'. This is also nearly finished, and will be out of the workshop soon to make room for 'Windsong'. Sheila from S.A.B. Signs has made a superb job of the boat name, with a gorgeous little Cornish 'piskie' sitting on a toadstool underneath. Unfortunately, we forgot to get a photo before we left but will try to get Ali to take one and email it to me. Sheila will also be painting our boat name, and I am now desperately trying to think of a picture that we can use to do her beautiful artwork justice - all ideas will be most welcome!
