Top Cover now in North Berwick but a ridge pole and frames required to be fabricated before this can be fitted on the boat.
The outside of the hull is now faired and ready for the painting process to commence. Note: the fairing has taken two or three days longer than expected but we are still pushing for completion in 2 weeks.
Work Targets for Wk 32.
NB001: Ridge pole and frames to be made thus allowing the fitting of the boats cover.
NB002: Painting process to commence. Note: 2 coats of sealer, 2 coats of undercoat before 2 coats to top coat.
NB01 Is now the right way up with all it's top coats on. All internal items are in build or have been completed. NB01 requires it's top rail to be varnished. The seats and floorboards are being oiled and varnished before being fitted inside the hull. The nameplates are at Douglas Seton, who is very kindly doing the sign writing. Kebes and top rubbing rails still to be installed.
NB02 inside hull clean-up progressing well.
NB001 only requires it's top coat to be applied before turning over again to install seats and floor boards.
Wood has been delivered to the shed for floor boards and sheer rubbing rails.
NB002 The clean-up of the inside of hull is progressing well.
