WAVE CHIEF Wave Chief with RAS deck and boats fitted. On power trials March 2010.

Plans of 'Empire Mars' (RFA Wave Duke) from the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. The plans had no hull lines so I had to draw them. She is 62 inches long and is made out of wood. Then the hull was fibre-glassed. I gave the necessary measurements from the plans to my father, then he did all the woodworks, the paint jobs and the riggings. Without ballast she weighs between 5kg and 6kg. With ballast she weighs approximately 14kg. This photo was taken on Monday 14th June 2010. (Andrew Grima and his son Ken Grima (Malta)).
