Sorting out the decks

January 7, 2017

Before we made a start on the sanding of the deck the cabin area had to be sheeted up to stop any dust from going down below.

Then the decks had to cleared of any loose items and then get out the orbital sander and finger motor sander to get where the other sander could not get in around any deck fittings

The biggest job was sanding level the new repairs with the old deck covering and making level

After the decks are sanded then we have to fit quadrant around the cabin sides and make fancy end pieces to join the different lengths of quadrant together.

anf make an odd angled piece to go along the edge of the deck covering to the face of the transom to ensure the transom to deck covering joint is watertight.

A change in direction and other work to do

November 13, 2013

As with all jobs in a boatyard, there are always changes just around the round when you least expect it to come from. So as jobs get put on hold it gives you time to get on with other jobs that you had put off for another time.
This is the case with the new dinghy the company will be building over the winter months. Now that time as made itself available in the schedule, it as been possible to make a start on cutting and shaping the stem and apron of the dinghy and over the next coming days and weeks the boat should start to take shape from a log of larch to a small clinker dinghy.
This photo is of the apron being cut down to shape before being planed down to the correct finished shape.

This photo shows the apron being started to be planed down to the correct finished size and shape before it has the copper bolts fitted and it is glued together.
