This weeks update will be brief as this weeks progress has been based on preparing areas to be worked on for next week.
The week began with a thorough cleaning of the interior by Cheryl. During the glass blasting, water and glass got into the boat, so this needed to be taken care of. Whilst she did this I prepared the gunwale for painting. The gunwale was a section of the deck which was hard to get with the glass blasting machine, so I made sure any corroded sections, was chipped, grinded and cleaned.
Cheryl is in the process of taking apart the winches, cleaning all the parts and putting everything back together. A long slow process which needed to be done and by the looks of things haven’t been done in years. So far 7 winches are off the boat and 5 more are still bolted to the mast and coachroof.
We went to Summer ville and picked up our hatches which have been powder coated and now looking like new. The new acrylic has been ordered and should be with us by next week.
This week has been a tough week weather wise. Temperatures dropped considerably and was in the low single digits most mornings. With the cold came a strong bitter wind which didn’t make working out side very easy. We are keeping our fingers cross for warmer weather for next week. This about sums up this week.
Have a Happy Easter weekend.
A+ Morgan & Cheryl
