Yacht launched after 30 years of work

The Herald Online in South Africa reports on the 30 years it took for a father and son to build a boat.

John Lochhead and his father started working on a yacht in 1977, continuing till his father’s death in 1981.

The yacht sat unfinished for over a decade till Lochhead started working on it again. The yacht was finally launched after it was transported by flatbed truck to Port Elizabeth harbour.
