One step forwards and two steps back

Back to the drawing board! I decided that we would need to take radical action, chopping out the rear deck drain channels, then the entire weedhatch!

We found that the diesel tank had rusted through, behind the weedhatch, so a large section of the tank got the chop.

I could now get at the narrow area around each side of the tank. I, once again, cleaned out the tank, finally getting at the last deposits in these, hard to get to, areas.

The water is scarily close to the opening! LOL! The things you do to save paying for drydock or slipway!
