Paper boat has been found in Uig Museum, Outer Hebrides, and is on it's way to South Georgia Whaling Museum!

Hi Joanne

I found one of your boats at the Uig Museum, Isle of Lewis while guiding a tour bus around the area. I have posted it to the South Georgia Whaling Museum, they only get mail once a month, so it may be some time before they acknowledge its arrival. I recently posted them copies of my publication Balaich na Whalers which included accounts and pictures of Lewismen working "at the whaling" in South Georgia. Great project I will be following with interest.
