New Deck Planks

Winter Work

The winter covers have now been fitted with the forward section temporarily fitted to allow easy access to the forward deck. The first of the rotten deck planks have been removed, replaced, seams caulked and then sealed with stockholm tar. Three down, lots more to go.

Winter Cover

Sweeps, Alternative Use.

The list of things to do seems to be growing by the day and the removal of the center sections of the bulwarks presented a problem when trying to fit the winter covers. This has been solved with the lashing of the sweeps to the remaining bulwarks to bridge the gaps and then lashing the cover frame to the sweeps. It doesn't look pretty but seems to work!

Nancy Belle.

Nancy Belle has been moved to the bottom of the boat shed slipway, ready to be moved to the top and then covered for the winter.
