How have I not seen this??


Part of the restoration of the Massey Shaw on the Discovery Channel. Lots of great footage and even more interesting to see with first hand knowledge of Beta III. Just very relieved I don’t have all the fire pumps to contend with. Now I just need a member of Madness to front my project 😄.

The programme manages to over simplify things pretty spectacularly… They distill the refurb into four things to fix, the rubbing strakes, an engine and some sort of bell system and don’t look at the hull or paintwork at all. If only!! Think I may have to steal the design for the glass lanterns over the engine hatch though.

Massive thanks to Dug for flagging this up to me.
