Holes and plugs ….

Plugs are being cut from offcuts of the hardwood being used for the planks.  Every countersunk  hole in the planks contains a dump or a spike or a bolt and will need to be plugged before the fairing of the hull commences.

Rudder ready for repairs ….

The rudder has been uncovered ready for inspection and repairs . There are a few areas of soft timber that will be removed and graving pieces inserted.  We shall attempt to follow the progress of these repairs over the next several months.
