Congratulations Chis. Lots of early nights now, you need plenty of stamina being a grandad.
He's been a Grandad (x5) for some years now. That is why he is having his 70th birthday when he is actually only 64.

:D :D :D :D

That's it...up to date for now. I'll get back on the job when I'm allowed to once more interact with dust!

After some back and forth between myself and Bruce, current owner of Gull 3, here is a sketch of the proposed colour scheme. In the interest of Full Disclosure, I should point out that the drawing is an accurate portrayal of the model, not the full-size!
