So Far, So Good...

Quite a lot of work has been done on the Comet since the last update - as you may have gathered from the picture above. The team have focused mainly on the hull of the ship - replacing the old planks and damaged wood.

By watching the video posted here below, you will be able to see for yourself what progress has been made in the past month or so. The video features footage of the team working away on different parts of the boat and it also shows them placing a new steam bent piece of wood onto the exterior of the ship.

Note that the video uses collected footage shot over the course of a month.
