Bluebird Project — Progress 22

Covering the period November 2016 — February 2017, our latest ‘Progress’ video starts with a reminder of the excitement of the first in-hull engine run for 50 years before we take the boat back indoors and get her stripped down and up into her rollover jig for the start of the final build of the bodywork, with the installation of some side panels, the start of repairing the floor skins and the milestone of the permanent refitting of the original rear planing wedge.
