Deck Repair

Despite all the cold and wet weather the forward deck seams have been cleaned out. Not an easy job! These are now in the process of being re caulked, with oakum, and then sealed with stockholm tar.

Hot Tip.

To enable the tar to be payed evenly into the seams, without solidifying on the ladle, the ladle needs to be kept hotter than the molten tar. Also it makes the job a bit warmer on a cold day.
