"We are so looking forward to the start of 2019.
A brand new Cygnus 21, new creel gear, and hopefully lots and lots of posts, pictures, and videos to come.
We hope hope you enjoy.
Please feel free to share.

All the best"

Well, Lad's and Lassie's!!! At last, a wee progress report on the builders progress.
As you can see, the hull thickness has been laid down, and now the ribs are being fiberglassed in.
She maybe be out the plug, next week, if all goes wellπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

Ladies and gentlemen! I give you the "Lynsey B"......she's out the mould !.....and looking very dapper, if I do say so, myself! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜β€β€β€

A few shots of her inside, before the lift πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ

Why the 2p piece?- it's an old boat builders tradition.
The old men used to put a penny down, before they laid the keel.
It's to bring good luck, and good fortune πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

1st piece of capping, steam bent into place this morning.

Picked up this addition this morning.πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ
The Deck plate, for the pot Hauler hydraulics, for the folks, not in the know. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

Video update from Baz (unfortunately can't upload video!) but I can assure you he was telling us that there has been a slight delay on the wood for the boat as the wood delivered to the yard was not a high enough spec.

He also took delivery of loading straps to easily move the boat when it arrives and they can be used for launching, as well.
