    The local news showed that Ambush is now outside the Dock Hall and so is revealed to the world!
    (I don't think it has got wet yet, though.)

    If this weather keeps up, it'll get very wet..

    I wonder how overdue the launch is now?

    I am heading over to Barrow on Sunday for the first wet test of the U uPVC class.(Seeing if the motors and props and the rudder does the job - you know that kind of thing.)

    I will also have a peek over the dock wall to have a look at Ambush, and let you know.

    I hope your launch goes better than the full size ones have done recently....

    I had a peek last Sunday and I'm pleased to say that Ambush is now floating in the Dock.

    Excellent...it's about time she got her bottom wet. You must live very close to the yard, I take it?
