It's been a long time since my last post at the end of 2014. Heavy work on Thordis had to stop, I crushed three discs in my lower back and paralised my right leg which took a year to recover. The Hampton car frame was finished and sent off for the aluminium body to be made. The body came back for a while until Terry had time to make the wings and I managed to make a full string quartet of 2 violins, viola and cello at the beginning of 2017 with a sell out concert in May. It's been quite eventful and all the time small pieces of Thordis have been progressing slowly and new genuine period parts have been found for the interior. The really memerable one for me was finding a genuine Camper and Nicholson binnacle compass the exact pattern for the yacht!

 

Thanks for all the comments of support and we look forward to working on Thordis again in 2018.
