A Hole In One

Cutting the turf off and digging a shallow hole under the stern and we have the rudder back on...


A bit agricultural looking but sturdy, back where it should be and one less job to do!

The lazarette hatch has been bolted back on to the deck with new fasteners and hardwood supports, the deck moulding has had a 9mm thick neoprene seal stuck on...


Now all I need is to decide how to hold it down securely?

The companionway has had it's base epoxied in place...


Followed by a lot of tiresome sanding, it's a constant round of make a mess, tidy up, make more mess... and so on. The interior of Betsy is in a terrible state but there's more sanding to be done yet!
