Two models tug Meechings seen ready for a sail at Bluewater's No.7 Lake.

The smaller one is mine, built entirely from photos and from memory by modeller Fred Davis. It shows Meeching as she was around 1993.

The larger one has just been built by George Boyd, from her original plans and from almost 400 photos that I sent him. 'Ultra-accurate' are the words I'd use! It shows Meeching around 30 years earlier than mine, as she was around 1961/2. We used a little artistic licence and added the white line on the hull that probably appeared a year or so later!
