As you can see by the photo’s work is progressing nicely, The Samson posts are near to being finished and the Cockpit sole will be  ready for fitting.

There has been progress on cleaning paint and old glue from the Wheel house roof so that we precede with the new cover, this has been achieved by help from David O, Neil S and Glynis.

The anode posts have been installed by Richard and David R.

The exhaust was  fitted with help from Miles  through to the Wheel house.

The Skeg Shoe is being modified.
