I have just been looking at your website.
What an amazing job you have done! I knew there were some rust areas to be
repaired, but I had no idea as to the extent. It seems you have almost rebuilt
the entire vessel!
You have obviously uncovered some design flaws, and rectified them (I never
understood why they had aluminium tanks, for example). Your treatment of the
bilge areas is also such an improvement, and flush fitting the windows also
eliminates a rust trap.
Your workmanship is absolutely superb, and so thorough. I'm sorry that there
was obviously more to do than you (or I) had thought, but now you can look
forward to many years of safe sailing.
Congratulations on your achievement and I wish you all the best for the future.
Thank you very much, Rob, for the big compliment. Few people can appreciate our work like you. I can assure you that we are still very happy with Reliant. She is a big vessel with a great shape. The work was worthwhile.
