got to be the best grandchildren a bloke could want. I hope to instil a 'joy of boats' feeling in them.

Nice work, great kids. May I ask what got you interested in using match sticks?

too much time on my hands, a supply of match sticks, popsticks, skewers, a litre of PVA glue and a cupboard of old housepaint- and after doing that first one I was intrigued with the possibilities -- and determined to correct the mistakes I had made. Once the grandkids saw what I was doing they all wanted one. No more -- too fiddly but worth the experience
