Been a while since done any blogging on the site, so this is a run down of what’s been going on in the world of Mai -Star II restoration world.

It has been a long while since I have been able to find the time to put pen to paper so to speak.

Here goes, it has been a busy time down at the boatyards around the country where I have been working as well as finding time to work on my own yacht.

The work on Mai-Star II as been a little slow, however progress as been made in sorting out the leaking problem in the bow. It was found that the ends of the planks were more holey than godly and that these needed to be replaced with new lengths of plank and the surrounding planks needed refixing where possible. Once this was done than the attention was back on getting the new ribs steamed into position and nailed up ready fro cliching up later.

Another that has been sorted is the cabin roof that is well on the way to be getting finished and then covered and sealed before the hatch sliders and hand rails are re-fixed and the edging trims made and fixed in place.

Now just got to wait for some more oak to make the remaining ribs and then get them steamed in place before tackling the lose fixing in the frames and recaulking the hull and starting to repaint it when the weather gets better.

In the meantime there is plenty of jobs to get on with inside the boat while the weather is against us on the outside. Plenty of little jobs like making and fitting trims, sanding the new cabin sides painting and varnishing other woodwork in the boat. Making new chain locker bulkheads and lockers, so all in all plenty to get on with in the near future.
