Slow progress, but progress.


This weeks works included, final loose fit of Samson Posts, pattern making and cutting of cockpit sole, unable to check if it fits as I was on my own.

The engine hatch was taken apart and cleaned of all loose paint and old glue, as the loose joints were making a bad fit, this will be re glued and squared up with the help of Harry [shipwright] next week.

I have removed the inner above front screen wood so as to get a pattern for the missing port side.

All other wooden parts have been sorted into relevant bundles and marked so no parts go missing.

A big thanks to those volunteers who helped this week to include Rose and Luke
