Fantastic build. Was lucky enough to have a tour of her while docked at Plymouth Naval Yard.

Cracking build. How long did she take to construct?
Thank you.
I originally bought her semi completed by a gentleman who had been working on her on and off for 20 years., and got fed up.
He had done a great job but she lacked detail, and he had done a few things I wouldn't have done.
No disrespect to him as we all have our own way of doing thigs
It took me a further 2 years to get her to the state she is in now, just need to get her to the lake when permitted to check her stability.
Although the previous owner had done ballast tests (masses of lead inside) and had told me all was good, I have added so much top side I need to check this out myself.
