Update #1


fresh right out the proverbial aga )

So THIS is where I’m at and INDEED Where your help and support Has got me and the boat so far ...

There’s a main guy in the metal fabrication (who LOVES TA BE GIVEN DA BISCUITS ... he’s BOB and he’s taken two days out of his three month backlog to sort out the rotted brackets from the rudder
Telling me IF I had not sorted this out now it was about to fall off !!

Now the boat has stainless steeel solid steerage !!

So here is the boat as if 10pm last night along with the first coat of underwater prime ... I’m of course back there tonight to make some moves in the putty between the planks but just giving you guys an update which there should always be more but I absolutely am allergic to tech and when you’re busy it’s twice as hard as ye may know so
More to follow naturally !
