Flying Fish R emerging from shed... one step closre to launching

Long restoration projects tend to become part of the furniture of a workshop... they leave a gaping hole when they finally move out for launching!
There are still some niggly jobs to do now before the big day: checking all the plumbing (this was difficult to do inside the workshop with water) and solar electrics etc.
Props had to be built to transport the spars on top of the boat.
