Second test sailing for the U class at Barrow this morning, with superstructure in place. All went well she handles nicely on the surface. Next job to get her diving.
The interest in the U Class comes from Brian and Nigel really. Nigel making fibreglass versions of Brian's originals. The U uPVC class is a quick, cheap and cheerful fill in before the "Brian mini U" comes along. (Nudging Nigel!)
I have been building her of almost natural materials, including clay, tin sheet and sewer pipe! (Organic almost.)
Mind you (or U!) the U class was very significant in WW2 with something like 70 being built, many in Barrow with this one being used to very considerable effect by the Polish Navy in the Med as the "Dzik" (Wild Boar)
Suits U sir!
