March 2012

We went to see the Medway Queen again (last visited in April and May 2011) before it goes- when nobody knows! One person can do 150 rivets a day since it takes 3 minutes per hole but not everyone achieves that. The boat is incredibly slender because it is an estuary boat- 180′ as opposed to the Waverley which is 240′ wide. The timber for the decks has been delivered have yet to be placed in position. All 22000 running feet! So many photos- difficult to decide which ones to use!
