    Shows shows shows. She's absolutely stunningly beautiful. We all agree and can see that. Now hurry up and get her on the water so we can see her sailing.

    After all the explaining at various boat shows, I finally put this together. These are the first three iterations of UNA on her way to become Unaboats in England. Vigia is the oldest registered craft in England. The Classic Boat Museum in West Cowes, Isle of Wight is currently building a reproduction of this craft. https://www.classicboatmuseum.com

    My replica of the Broad Axe Award is finished and mine forever. Thanks to the Catboat Association for the loan of the original. As you can see, the award means a lot to me.

    A lovely award, wonderfully well-deserved. I only wish there was an equivalent presentation that we could confer for the outstanding thread you have created here.

    Many thanks.

    Winter modification to UNA:
    1. Relocate the ballast.
    2. Make fast the movable floor boards.
    3. Facilitate aft drainage.

    Just discovered these. Guess UNA had seats! Presented to the Royal St. George Yacht Club in 1853.

    Anyone have trouble with Postage.com? All or almost all of my photos are gone. It's Photobucket all over again.

    so looking forward to sailing in company with UNA up at the SRR, it'll be fun even if most of what we see of her is the transom!
