Many thanks to Alan Glasson for your kind words I just picked up on your message , these past few years I have been having quite a few health problems which has slowed me and my ships down but just of late I feel a little better and with that I feel a tea clipper coming on , I never went to the Vindi they would not have me to young, I had to do what a lot of us did back then and lied about my age I got myself aboard the old HMS Worcester off Gravesend spent all my time in her in the sink learning how to wash up it took me 5 months before I got the hang of it best regards to all hands Dave .

Thanks to the many lads and ladies who came to welcome Shirley and I for a SEQ Meet & Greet day at the South Tweed Bowls Club - a really great day. A special thanks to those who traveled some distance to attend.

Thanks also to Brian & Eileen Hunt who as hosts showed us much generosity in their time and entertainment.

To Dave Smith, Iam a very proud owner of one of your ships in a bottle,I won it in a raffle in the NZ, you built it in 2004,
I was also a very good mate with one of your VINDI Assn, Dennis Oakley & Wynn, how I miss the chats I used to have with him,
Good to hear your still making the boats,
