- The third visit from Bob Medler, the Ships Surveyor, checking the standard of work completed to date and seeing what else needs renewing/repairing.
- Mass production of Shamrock's bulwark stanchions has been ongoing as all 36 of her stanchions required replacement. The new stanchions were cut from 5 in (12 cm) square oak to a height of 1 ft.4 in (41 cm) above the deck and tapered in on the inboard face to 3 in (7.5 cm) at the top, with the below deck section then cut to fit between the beamshelf and sheer strake. Only three more to go!
- The cargo hold hatch coaming has been removed, and the new coamings of 12 ft. (3.7 m) sides of 12 in (30 cm) x 6 in (15 cm) the 11 ft. (3.4 m) ends of 11 in (28 cm) x 5 in (13 cm) cut from large bulks of larch in the boat shed. Cotehele rangers assisted in carrying the cut timber onto Shamrock where further shaping carried out. Both sides have been bolted in place with weather check dovetail having been cut on the sides and ends ready for the end coaming pieces to be fitted.
- Plugging of old nail holes and new hull plank nail/bolt holes with ether oak or larch is continuing. The manufacture of these plugs is a very time consuming activity but fortunately it can be carried out in the boat shed.
