GRIMLO V blue lines

Please do not disturb the artist at work  :-)


Swan 44-169 ISKANDER (formerly KILKENNY) came all the way from Chicago on a cargo ship and was unloaded in Antwerp. Quite a long trailer indeed. She was then launched in Monaco Marine St. Laurent du Var for her first taste of sea water. We did commission the boat and rig her up.
