Hi Alan - Thank you very much for your post and thank you very much for all of your help.  I could not have carried through with the project were it not for your generosity of time, and your expertise and talent. 

Our QE2 is straining at her lines to be off, but starting a voyage on a Friday is probably not the best idea.

So forthwith, QE2 jigsaw will be sailing for Isabelle's house.  Since Isabelle was the first person to loan her jigsaw, it would be nice if Isabelle fits together our new jigsaw for the first time.

Then I thought QE2 (jigsaw) might like to go to Lynda's house and to your house. 

And perhaps now, we could start adding names to the list of those who would like a visit from our QE2 (jigsaw).

Thank you, Rob, very much for your kind words.  I do appreciate it very much !  This has been a work in progress by many of us on The Forum and it has been exciting to see it take place.  I can not tell you how excited I was to come home yesterday and find QE2 at my door (It made me think of your picture on the calendar "Can I take her home with me") !

Hi All --

QE2 (Jigsaw No. 736C) has embarked on her maiden voyage and is currently headed to Isabelle's house, where I believe the dredging is completed at QE2's dock. 

Updates on her voyage will be posted as received.

Excellent news, June! Dredging has been completed and all dockers have been notified that she is underway, arrival time as yet unknown.

Jigsaw crew are standing by and camera batteries being recharged.

Greatly looking forward to this new adventure! Thank you, June, for allowing me to provide her first port of call :) .

Hi Isabelle -

Thank you very much for your post.  I am glad to hear that dredging has been completed and glad to hear the dockers are awaiting her arrival, as well as the jigsaw crew.  She was very anxious to begin her voyage so I think she will be making good time.  Her arrival should be between 22 July and 26 July.

Thank you, Isabelle, for allowing QE2's (Jigsaw No. 736C) maiden voyage destination to be at your house.  I hope you will be pleased with her as well as all who follow in fitting her together at their respective houses. 

June  :)

Hi Adam -

She is adding more miles to our beloved QE2's record by proxy as Peter had mentioned regarding one of the other jigsaws !

Hi Lynda - Thank you very much for your post.  Since she only covered 147 miles from the Shipyard (manufacturer) to her dock at my house, she is taking if off to an easy start and bringing herself up to speed gradually.  Now that she is actually away and at sea, her progress will be quite fast.  June   ;D

No virtual AIS reading so far today, so our QE2 (Jigsaw No. 736C) must still be in transit over the Atlantic or perhaps waiting to go through customs. 

There is a log sheet inside her box logging the first 147 miles covered.

Hello June,

Amazing what the virtual AIS can tell us!

Despite the early hour, the dockers were ready as they always have been for QE2, and she has landed safely.

The puzzle crew are now being assembled, and are expected to be fully operational by the week-end.

More reports to follow! :)

Hi Isabelle -

Thank you very much for your post and I am so excited that our QE2 (jigsaw) has docked at your house.  I knew that your dock workers would be ready !

Glad to hear that the puzzle crew is being assembled and will soon be at work.

Have an awesome day !

The big day has dawned, and the jigsaw crew have got down to work. Here is a little progress report in picture form :







By this evening, when daylight had faded, we had assembled most of the frame and sorted some of the pieces into areas of the same colour. This picture is excellent for a jigsaw, with sufficient variety to allow for some progress, and sufficient difficulty to keep us interested. Thank you all -- Alan Kirby, Alan Snelson and of course June Ingram!

It is a good thing, by the way, that the jigsaw is safe in its metal box. This has already received its first few dents during a stormy transatlantic...

I have created a new album in the QE2Story Gallery for jigsaw pictures -- this is here :

Hi Isabelle -

Thank you very much for your progress report and pictures and to see our QE2 (jigsaw) during her refit.  I do hope you and the puzzle crew are enjoying her.  You have made great progress already, and yes, the metal box will serve well as protection.  Thank you very much for creating a jigsaw gallery - marvelous idea !

Have a wonderful day and continued enjoyment !
