Shamrock's painting season has started to gather pace with both main and mizzen tabernacles (the housings that holds the masts) having numerous layers of paint removed ready for painting, when a couple dry warm days arrive.

Best Laid Plans
Monday's plan to replace Shamrock's broken section of bulwark washstrake didn't quite go according to plan. The Mashford apprentices arrived and the morning was spent planning and shaping the new plank ready for fitting. The actual fitting of the plank had to be cancelled due to heavy rain stopping the electric steamer from being used. Fitting is now scheduled for Monday 31st, weather permitting.
