Well work started on the few planks I need to replace on the starboard side. Quite amazing there is not that many I feel need replacing, that decision is based on the condition of the ones already removed, remarkable to say the least. First job though was to do something about the forest of nails sticking out of the hull. So driving the nails in and riveting them all up was next on the agender.
|Forest of nails|
|Nails hammered down|
|Hull now back in shape!|
|Battey locker view|
|Rest of the boat view, Riveting isn't it?|
|Fore foot removed|
|Damaged block. it used to be Oak.|
|Wedged in position to drill the bolt holes|
|view from portside|
So work is continuing and now I can just about make out a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel, well more like a loom really.
