Whilst we still lived on the Duck, I made this little souvenir for James’s Christmas present. It’s a few little mementos of Lucky Duck‘s “adventures” in the style of a museum display. I intended it as something to take with us and display in our new boat once we’d sold the Duck. It lived in the garage until recently when I took it out of its box to display it on top of one of our bookshelves in Willow‘s living room. It’s a reminder of just how far we’ve come in nearly six years of boating, and the help we received from so many people when things when wrong for us is one of the main reasons we try and help other boaters as much as we can.

The piece of coupling which had held one of the pesky grub screw until it came loose.
