Team Sherrin saves the day

This Thursday was planned to be a trip to Bridge Rubber in Southampton then on to Portsmouth. Unfortunately owing to two poorly cars and one poorly lady it had to be cancelled.

However it was business as usual for Tim and Mark who were kept busy designing cockpit locker lids/seats/steps and made a start on constructing the cockpit sole having made and fitted a sole bearer to the aft bulkhead. They also cut an access hole in the bulkhead below it which was fine for a camera but will need enlarging to enable a person lying in the bilge below the sole to work on the rudder bearing or greaser.

rudder stock upper bearing and gland sees daylight for the first time in years.
the first sole timber in place and mousehole!
