Great Harry - progress update

Some initial feedback on my proposal to reconstruct the Great Harry. I've just recorded an interview for the local radio station Time FM, discussing the idea, and a couple of other papers have been in touch, so hopefully some debate will be prompted by those.

Meanwhile, a specialist shipyard has put the price of a totally authentic rebuild at an eye-wateringly high level, simply because of the vast size of the original. A smaller replica will therefore almost certainly be the order of the day, not least to enable the vessel to be manageable for sail training and so on. So, lots of things to consider further, and I look forward to hearing other thoughts too.
