People's Boat...

More information here, http://www.theboatproject.com/ but this morning on the way to work I came in via Thornham Marina to see the Peoples Boat in the flesh, and before she starts her journey along the south coast...  glad I did..  she's breathtaking..

Cockpit...  I liked the saw handle on the right - just above there's a chunk of the original HMS Victory mizzen mast..

Drop keel...  Hermitage Bitter - that'll be Emsworth then...

Port side...  showing some of the detail...
Spirit level - with spirit/bubble still intact...
She looks fast...




What a beauty.....

  2. Absolutely beautiful and a work of real imagination. Unlike the junk "art" that was nominated for the Turner Prize, this will still be admired in 100 years time, by people who will be prepared to travel long distances to see it.
