This week we start again on the Mai-Star II and get underway with the list of work to do on her.

At last the weather has dried up a bit, so can make a start on getting the planks and ribs back in her again. Also get the cabin sides sorted out and get the edges of the deck squared off made ready to have the new cabin sides fitted back in place.

The main job this week will be to get the new planks in and also the splines fitted in the planks around the stern where the planks and stern post meet. This as for sometime been a cause of a leak which as not gone away even after clearing out the seam and re-cualking it several times in the past. So it as been decided that it is time that the problem will be best solved by spline the seam.
