About Ship Happens - The rebuilding of a WW2 Ship

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for Being here! So if your here you have properly watched our video's, and know a little about us! 
So we (very out of the blue) Purchased a very run down ship, because this historical ship needs saving, the old girl was in WW2 at the D-Day landings, and she even captured a German biber submarine. So we couldn't let a ship like this be left to rot, there are only a handful left in the world!  
So with our limited budget we are hoping to get her sea worthy again! 
This is a family project, Simon & Gemma (husband and wife) along with our 2 Children, we are going to put as much time and effort into this as we can, as well as still working full time in our camper conversion company. 
We hope you enjoy our journey and follow along!
