Rob - has Capt. McN got my e-address?  I'm still waiting to hear from him in order to arrange a handover date...

The sailing from Epsom is scheduled for Monday 5th January; it will be a short voyage to Trinity House for handover in person.  :)

Indeed she has, and Captain McNaught very kindly gave me a quick tour of the very impressive interior of Trinity House while I was there - I had a bit over half an hour with him.

He has said he will forward me some construction progress photographs for me to post up on to the forum in due course.

Great news, Peter !  That is wonderful that you had some time with Captain McNaught and that he gave you a tour of Trinity House while you were there.  We will look forward with anticipation to photos of Captain McNaught's refit progress.  And I am sure that your painting made into a jigsaw of our beloved QE2 is looking forward to as happy and as long a career as our QE2 !  Now looking forward to the soon to be fitted together QE2 Liverpool Farewell.

Wonderful to hear that Captain McNaught had taken time to give you a tour of Trinity House.  Looking forward to seeing the photos. 
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Hi Peter -

Any word on Captain McNaught's puzzle progress ?  I imagine he is tremendously busy, but just thought I would ask.

Right.... who is next for "Evening at Sea" please?



QE2 has docked after her voyage with Captain McNaught, and what a voyage it has been!  :)

The Master Mariner himself completed the puzzle on 17th February; QE2 then proceeded to his Washington house where his wife completed it and then his son Steven had a go as well, completing it on 22nd May.  What is especially special about that is that Steven McNaught completed QE2 while he was off duty in his place of work... for those who don't know, he is the navigator on board P&O's brand new Britannia.

This means that QE2 has once again been cruising the Mediteranean and Canaries as well as clocking up a round trip to Washington...

Thank you very much, Peter, for the update on QE2's (jigsaw) refits. 

She certainly has had a lot of work done in a short period of time.  Marvelous work Captain McNaught, his wife, and his son.

Do you know how many miles QE2 has put on since the beginning of her travels ?  And just think of the stories that QE2 (jigsaw) had to tell to the new Britannia !   :)

I want to be on the list but perhaps she should make the rounds of the UK before her next Transatlantic !

Yes, let's get a few names then see who's nearest to me - might be able to do another very safe person to person handover. :)

Not this time June, it had to be a secure postal return.
