This is now hanging in my kitchen window - my mum made it using one of Bill's drawings as a pattern - he's very proud of it, and it looks lovely with the sunlight coming through.
And this is the Radiant Queen -
'Hello! I've been looking at the wooden boats and wonder if you would be able to customise one for a friend's birthday on April 23rd? She owns a dive boat named Radiant Queen and it will be her 30th birthday so ET 30 would be the required registration. '
The Radiant Queen defied the volcanic ash and arrived in Orkney on time -
'She is perfect in every detail. Thank you Elli, from a very happy customer x'
And here's the real Radiant Queen - available to charter for diving in Scapa Flow, more details here.
