Little X

31 May 2015

My brother is a wooden boat builder, and recently one of the many boats he has worked on was launched in our local harbour. Having never seen this happen before, we all went along to watch the events.

This is a small racing yacht called an X Class. Whittle Marine, company my brother works for, specialises in the restoration of these boats and this one had been completely rebuilt, right down to it's 'rib cage', all those rivets had to be removed and replaced...sort of mind boggling! All in a days work for my brother (the one in the dungarees)

 It all went smoothly, and champagne and strawberries were consumed there after.
