Hi, made some more simple progress. I installed the Deck Beam's (they do seem incredibly flimsy) and did my best to reinforce with quite a large amount of P38 and Epoxy. I guess they will hold now. Photo shows them masked up>

Then I gave the whole interior a quick coat of Halfords Grey Primer. I did this because on my last couple of boats (decades ago) I could not stop water ingress and the various wooden parts got swollen and were lots of trouble.

Not much planned now, lucky me off for a holiday! When I get back have to tackle the rudders, not looking forward to that as once epoxy's set they cant be removed!


Thanks for looking in,


Derek
