Where to begin!?

We are officially the worst bloggers ever. I don't think letting a year pass without a single post is normal by anyones standards. Any way lets start with some deck gear and in the nextpost we'll move inside. Here you can see the maxwell 3500 with the deck wash spigots along side. One is for fresh wash down and the other is salt for the super dirty jobs. you can also see the deck paint we've chosen. Only some of the deck has been painted. Weather permitting we'll do the rest in a week or two. You can also see the rollers we designed and made. They each have an inch ID 316 tube pressed in and sit on an inch 316 shaft. The whole system works like magic with 1/2 inch chain. Still to add is a bar to stop the chain jumping under extreme conditions. Thats it for now. Next inside. Galley maybe?
