Here is Simon trying to get better drainage around the boat to help dry the area ready for our painting party!

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for being here -

we are 8 months into our voyage! we stumbled across an old WW2 ship on eBay, and without thinking we bought her! So this is the start of something crazy, she has so much history and so many stories to tell, So along the way as well as trying to bring her back to life we will also be looking back at her history.
We are very hands on people, in our day job we build camper vans, so we are hoping to use our skills, and obviously we have so much more to learn along the way!

Please be kind, we take all of your comments to heart so if you haven’t got anything positive to say then don’t say anything at all!!! But any help and advice you can give along the way would be great!
