Funds are now in place to continue the build from where we left off. We began with a productive meeting to plan the next few weeks.
Shipwright Dave began fairing in (shaping) the supports of the cabin roof .

 This takes a good eye and a lot of weighing up !

 Wednesday Phil went into artistic mode but he only had grey paint to be creative with.
It's good to be back.

                                  Tony Mead      Lt Cdr R.N.(Ret)
Tony Mead, one of the main drivers of the Helen II project, has sadly resigned from the board of trustees as he has moved to Brittany !
Tony was responsible for the day to day management of the build and his knowledge of wooden boat design was excellent.
The team wish him a happy and enjoyable " retirement francaise" and thank him for his total commitment to the project.
We will see him again at the Helen II launch . Keep smiling !!!
