About to settle by the water at least - not far to go now!

She's off

 What a milestone that was. Oddity is now by the waterside with a big joblist to get her ready for launch next week. The whole operation was very tight by Newman Haulage squeezed their crane in and Charlie the next door farmer was amazing as he wriggled her through the village.

 Finally, after much running of wires and crawling about in tight spaces we have reached the point where we are pulling it all together by wiring the back of the panel. Feels like we have hit another mile stone.
