May Update

The renewal of Shamrock's starboard beamshelf has been completed with the cutting and fitting of the forward section. The first hull plank has been cut from a 9.75 meter (32ft) plank, steamed shaped and fitted. With the high cost of galvanised boat nails the crew have been employed in recycling a large quantity of old nails that where recovered during the removal of Shamrock's hull planks. These have been straightened, cleaned and finally had a coat of galvanise paint.
