This has been a busy week with a number of jobs done on Mai-Star II

This has been a busy week with a number of jobs done on Mai-Star II, namely the new cabin sides going back in place and better than before. The front ends are to have teak rubbing strips fitted to cut down on the wear caused by the staysail and jib sheets rubbing against them when the boat tacks as this was always a problem with the old cabin sides. Also the deck beams are going to be fixed into the cabin sides with half dovetails which was not done before as well. The four corners of the cabin will have corner posts fitted so that the whole structure will be tried together and make it stronger than before. Next week it will be the ribs and planking to be done and then get on with the new cabin roof after the ribs are fitted in the cabin.
