It is good to be back on the job in hand after a short break at home. While I was away, good progress has been made on several fronts. The new horn timber has been scarfed in and glued in place, the transom rebuild is well advanced and the first set of frames, station 33 are now in place complete with their floor and deck beam. Another set of frames, station 24, have been fitted and are awaiting completion.
News on various equipment is filtering in and I expect to be preparing some orders in the near future. I like more and more the way things seem to be developing in this regard.
It is also a great boon to have Sandra here for the week, as she has become, over the years, my sounding board and with her experience of gaff rigged yachts has already helped me clear up a few things today. She will be in great demand over the next few days.
