Oyster Visit March 2015 - sneak preview of hull number one

Our boat will be 475 hull number 3, the first boat in this extended and restyled model had not been built when we decided to buy her so the opportunity to crawl all over hull number one was a real treat especially as she was only launched yesterday..... we came away delighted with our choice. Don't you think the lines are perfect??

Emotions running high

We had seen the pictures in Feb and hadn't really thought much more about it other than there was a fibreglass shell.

So tired, jet-lagged and a bit overwhelmed with detail we drove the short distance to the Landamores site where the hull was laid-up and then walked in to a huge shed that was empty other than.....

yes our boat - and she looked like a boat - a real boat.....
