Almost there! I applied a coat of Humbrol Satincote today to the hull and superstructure. The superstructure is now complete except for one mast light which was a faulty casting and needs repair.
Tomorrow (if Grandson doesn't come visiting Wink ) will see the deck fittings installed and maybe a flotation test to see how many pounds of lead it requires.

I managed to get Yara on the water this morning for her maiden voyage. She sails very well - just a slight adjustment needed to the ballast to bring her level. I managed a few photos, but they are not very good - it was about 2 degrees C, with a perishing wind.

Yes please Phil. You could also move the Damen Stan tug and move the Pilot 40 build to the appropriate section.
