    Massive effort to get this, my son's boat, in the water. He really pushed himself on that. 6 months ago it was a one dollar stalled hull project sitting in a warehouse stripped of everything. Tragically unfinished of course ,yet there it sits.
    Couldn't have happened without Jase, Cam and Chris from the Milford club yard and hardstand. I would have driven up to Mahurangi but the last 2 days working on it wiped me out.

    The scroungy old dinghy is the black pig , the glass 8 footer I inherited with Waione in 1983.
    Thanks for the 2 photos, mind if I use them?

    Thanks Alan.

    John B, congratulations to your son and all involved, nice job!
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.
