Date Added: 25 April 2013

"I have built two ships for two children. They are 8 and 10 years old and are the son and daughter of the friend of my youngest daughter. After they have seen my SIB’s they are both willing to build an SIB. The boy wanted a rubber boot whit an outboard motor. The girl wanted to built a sailing boot. I have made the hull of both ships and the other parts. The boy and girl have painted the parts, making the ropes on the sailing boot and welding some brass parts. The girl has punched the sails and glued it on the mast and spars. They both put see into the bottles. (very hard working for both) After they had put the parts into the bottle I helped them to get everything on the right place and in the right position. I have made the Turkish not on the bottleneck en put some seal on the cork whit my mark in it. After that I have made an oak standard for both whit their names in it. The both were very pleased whit the result and showing it to their parents and grandparents. The bottle neck opening is 18mm." Frans Dekker
