Mend a Model Boat

Need someone to mend/restore a model boat.

Have a very special boat that my daughters grandfather made for her many years ago. It needs someone skilled enough to mend it. the ropes have broken off and the sails are coming away.

Is there anyone that has a hobby of models that might be able to offer some help.

Grandad is no longer with us and we have one upset daughter that her precious boat needs fixing.

    I know an elderly gent in Wellsford that has made the most amazing model boats - he used to be a lighthouse keeper. Would you be able to post to him and pay postage back to you - if so I could check if he would be interested in helping you out?

    Hi there Kindness. Yes I would be very interested to see if he was able to help. I have friends that live on the North Shore so they might be able to get it up to him for me as I wouldnt like to see any more damage done to it.

    Thanks, I have just rung him, unfortunately his health has not been good over winter so he is not keen to take your project on. He is apparently building a model of one of the lighthouses that he was a keeper of! Sorry I could not be of more help. There is a model boat club in Auckland perhaps your north shore friends could make some enquiries there and see if anyone knows of any contacts - they are at Waipuna.
