A big hello to all members

Hi My name is Robert.
I am a GRP laminator and have been for many many years.

Boating is a great hobbie for me and as I work on all sorts of boats . Yachts . and anything that floats. i have a great job.
I have an old Macwester 26 that i started to refurbish in November 2012.
But with work commitments and weather here in the U.K it is still ongoing.

Most of the items i am using on the refurbishment i have made myself including sails.

I like to make or try to make anything that saves some cash boating wise that is.
I started a home made blog on my website that may be of some intrest to someone


Well I am off now to have a good look around the forum.
Robert

Robert, wow - you've got quite the project there going. Amazing work that you've done so far. It really hurts me deep inside whenever I see a boat not being used and falling into disrepair. So it does make me really happy to see yours being saved and resurrected. Keep up your great work !

I hope to have it completed this year I was hopping for July but the weather has been against me just a little.
