Shamrock's aft deckhouse coaming has been removed allowing its supporting beams and the mizzen tabernacle to be inspected. The good news is that the beams and tabernacle are sound, and it was already known that the coaming needed to be renewed. The new aft 'deadwood' has been black buttered and bolted into place and the new transom board is in the process of being fitted. The timber for the decking, hatch coaming, knees, etc. has been delivered and drying out nicely under the cover of a tarpaulin, while the large Oak timber required for her new main beam is still being sourced.
|Ready for fitting.|
|Old and new bolts.|
