Greetings and welcome aboard Alan.
That’s an interesting project you’ve undertaken, and a nice website.
Thanks for the link-back to CF.
Maggie & I ran the Bar at Club Thunderball, in Staniel Cay, Bahamas.
Our logo was the 007 Gun*, with a liquid dribbling out the barrel into a cocktail glass, and the line “Licence to Fill”.

* FWIW:
The James Bond 007 Gun Symbol is intellectual property owned by Danjaq LLC, and United Artists Corporation.

Good luck with your project Alan. Looks like you've done a lot of research into the boat and how to properly restore it. I do suggest you run the spell checker of your web site though!

Sweet ride bro. Bond is one of my heroes.

Except Brosnan. Or that other punk Dalton... They sucked.

Cheers

Bill
