Club night 11th April

Not many at the club night this week, I noticed that the roads were packed on the way to the meeting and guessed rightly that Man City were playing at home. 
Someone mentioned that Man Utd were playing or on the Tele as well!.
Plenty of chatting and discussion at various tables on all manner of subjects of modelling, I know George Barrett and I had a good natter on the progress of our Narrow Boats, mine the leisure type and George's the working model, knowing George over the years I know his will be right down to the last rivet, what dedication, mine's not that detailed .
Frank Ogden was there with his latest project a schooner being made from an old engineering book,
been at it on and off for about 8 month's he said.
Frank's hull, nice herringbone planking
The section in his hand is the former for the lead weight

The plan's

The inside, not a case of out of sight out of mind, looks just as good.

What it will look like when finished.
Nice one Frank!

The ship's purser asked the sailor how he had spent his month's pay on shore leave.
"Some went on drink,some on women.and I guess I squandered the rest" was the reply.

Always borrow money from a pessimist, he doesn't expect to get it back.

The doctor told me to limit my drinks to one a day, I'm now up to April 16th 2020.
