The Buffer'd be more p!$$ed about the hands in the pockets than the ropes!

Great build, Brian! :) :)

The Dog boats are right up there as one of my favourite naval vessels.

Very nice! Makes me want to get one of the larger scale Elco 80 footers.

Saw this in the flesh today and your pics don't do it the justice it deserves. Really nicely done Brian!

I don't visit the other areas of the site as often as I should or else I would have come across this build earlier than I did. Truly a very, very impressive piece of work.  The work in progress pics are a masterclass in detailing and finishing. Bravo good Sir!  :)

If he was any sort of Buffer, they'd be done for hands in pockets, the ropes, and standing 'round like 'shags on a rock' ;D ;D
