Thanks for that Hughie, looks like they will fit her out in Adelaide before sailing her around the coast.
She doesn't look that big in that picture. I guess the replica is to scale?

While in Adelaide to see the finish of the annual solar car race from Darwin (the Dutch won again) we went to see how the City of Adelaide was progressing. There is a long way to go and it will take many years, but it will be so wonderful for those whose ancestors arrived on her - it's claimed over 250,00 descendants of passengers live in South Australia. Must admire the volunteers who have got her to this stage.
