Hi all, I´m John, almost 70, Dutch and living in Portugal for over 20 years. My first build was the Cutty Sark by BB. That one was destroyed when I was moving house. The second one, some 15 years ago, was the Smit Rotterdam, also a Billing Boats item. It was 70% finished when my business took all my time. It stood in a corner for 10 years, gathering humidity and dust. I gave it away. Four years ago I started on the BB Bluenose. With the hull completed I set it aside to restart my hobby of 50 years ago: restoring Dinky Toys. Now I´ve got more time, I went on with the Bluenose. It´s now 99% finished and I´m looking for another adventure. I would like to buy the AL Cutty Sark. That´s how I got on this website, looking for tips and ways to avoid disappointment. I´m sure I can learn a lot of you guys. Happy building you all.
