Tomsk has sailed. He’s had half an hour around our pool – which is a very pleasant way to spend a rare dry and warm evening. All was well with the controls acting as they should, no water on the decks and little list. He looked smashing too.

With this, I think I can say that this boat is complete. There are a couple of outstanding jobs- the radar still needs replacement and I have to wire up the navigation lights, but then you never really finish a model.

For the moment I need to stop. Like an artist who keeps daubing paint on a canvas and eventually ruins the work, I don’t want to risk tinkering forever and always being dissatisfied. At present I’m happy.

And that’s what it’s all about.
