The executive manager has visited our boat.

"I am very pleased with the boat, and changes made look good" he said.

Nice one Bruno.

I hope you don't mind, I translated the news article below. I hope my translation is good. Please correct me if anything is wrong.

"A distinguished guest on the Pilat

by our correspondent in Lyon

Mr. Aimable de Montrelay, deputy director of our company, did us the honour of a visit. He was kind enough to inspect the progress of the work and is declared to be very satisfied with it. Unfortunately, particularly monopolized by many obligations, he was not able to prolong his visit on board for very long. We sincerely thank him for the attention he kindly showed us."

Hi Royjess,
What a clever translation!
Thank you for it.

When my paper opens an office in Watton, I'll call you for a job. ;)

Your welcome.

I learned French at school and worked on a French cruise ship, so I picked up the lingo.

If I'm being honest with you, I actually cheated and used this website to translate ;)

May be you remember, when I got the boat, there was a big stair.

Image

It was big ans strong but quite out of scale.


Here is a new one more in compliance with the 1/32 scale.

Image

Notice that some spare have been delivered but not yet unpacked. ;)

The new staircase looks so much better with the finer treads.
The packing crate is a nice touch!!
