Royal Diadem 11

RD11 has been in the NEMT Boat Shed for ten days (while the weather has been so uncooperative for sailing) for some updating and repairs. But yesterday 1st September she was successfully slipped back into the water and it was a beautiful day too.

Bedford Lifeboat

Good progress is being made on the 1886 Bedford Lifeboat.

A great deal of work is being done even durring Covid19 restrictions with painting and restoration of the ‘little ships’ woodwork.

Here’s Stan and Alan who have just cut, shaped and fitted an oak rib into place near the stern and it looks good for at least another hundred years!
