The weather gods are my side for a change or lets hope so!

At last a day with some sunshine so that I can get on with work on the outside of the boat. This will be a chance to get the roof of the cabin sorted out and get ready to cover the roof with matting and epoxy resin once the temperature gets high enough to make the resin go off. So It will be time to fit the last two planks of the inner roof and then fit the outer marine plywood skin.

May be able to fit the last two portholes in the front of the cabin and then that job will be finished off.

Also with a clear dry day I will be able to finish off the bow planks and get them glued and screwed and nailed in place and painted and caulked. Then go round the boat sorting out the old fixing that need replacing and propping up the planks that have moved and fix them back on to the frames where they have come away from over the years.
