THE BUILD

So time marches on. In about 4 weeks the build will start. Excited is not a term I would use at this stage. I am now at the point of nervous trepidation. I, unlike so many others before me will not have the opportunity to visit the builder as my boat progresses. Living 3500 miles away it is a bit of a trek not to mention costly. A ticket at that time of the year being £3/400. However, if you know Ledgard Bridge they do put builds on line, so at least I will be able to see the boat being built.

I may be lucky and see my boat finished in May. While that does depend on Ledgard it also depends on DIFA (the company I work for) they have a very annoying habit of holding your final settlement for as long as they can in the hope that you will get fed up waiting and go without it. Me, not being stupid, will hold out till the bitter end. It's a lot of money to leave behind on a promise that "we will send it to you". I don't think soooo.
Now I have started this I shall continue on through the build, on to the water and beyond.
