I missed the boat

I knew you build a sailing ship Astrid, but I didn't realise you raced it:)

Happy belated birthday Astrid, I saw this in Madeira and was waiting for a opportunity to put it up, but I missed it!.

Interesting boat, especially the name. Certainly is a great thing to have a ship named after you. Nice find Nigel.

Perfect for Astrid and you've even done the lettering for her name in the same style. Brilliant.

In my opinion, Nigel, you can never be late with a birthday...you only extend it and make the celebration last longer. I know Astrid feels the same way. You made my day, too. smile
Nigel Clack: Ha, you ladies are all the same, my wife has a holiday week!smile
ha ha classic
Cheers
