We won the Classic Boats award!

Who wants to see K7 back in action this year?

That was a fun couple of days and we were in great company, people from all over the world turned up there last night. It was great to win something too, though it was never part of the plan as I pointed out in a short acceptance speech because we do this for the fun of it and by far the most asked question was, when is she going to run again.

It'll be a bit of a rush to the finish as it was last year and she'd go out all half complete again, but we did that last year too, but there's still time to get the job done if this next few days goes to plan. Failing that, we decided on the train coming home today, we'll put one of our diving boats back together and go look for some new shipwrecks to show you. Been a long time since the old joints did that!

In the meantime, thanks to everyone who voted for us in the Classic Boats Awards, we really appreciate it.
