    It was amazing to watch the boat coming together from them first two pieces of wood. I imagine there is blood, sweat and tears built into Gleda. You are now a team and soon you will be together on the sea and it will be her turn to look after you.

  4. Wow, what a transformation! The interior looks splendid! To appreciate the outside you need a bit better lighting, like some tropical sun or something…
    It’s not far away, man!
    Flying to Switzerland in a week, so will be much closer for my ‘spiritual’ presence at the launch! Exciting times!

    WOW!!! This move must have been stressful like hell. WELL DONE !!! I have got one lower hull nearly ready so a bit behind you 😉

    Beautiful! I know the feeling, and Beat too.

    Seems that the weather is terrible, as usual.

    You are funny, running with the cradles. Farms are the best places to build. Plenty of tools, machines and good people. Pilgrim Farm was absolutely great.

    Great work mate. Now she looks like a home. I look forward to seeing the pic of the launch. Good luck :o)

    Congrats! Gleda is looking really nice!

    Wow, and wow again! Nice job, Neil! She’s looking splendid and ready to run. I like the finishing touches on the interior. I was shocked just seeing the changes over the past two weeks. Must be a huge jolt to see her moved from the barn! Cheers!

    Heartfelt Congratulations ! Building a wooden boat is a great personal triumph, she is beautiful, well done! But sharing the story on the internet is a much greater acheivment, thank – you

  16. I´ve been tracking the Gleda Progress but I think there is a lack of detail information…
    When you say you have a cuppa, what exactly you mean by that? What flavor?
    Do you sleep?
    Do you have a clone?
    Just kidding Neil! You are a hero! Congrats!
