We have finally moved to overplating the stern and so hope to be back in the water soon now.
|The two rear sections of the uxter plate with cutouts for the weedhatch and the steering shaft.|
|Offering up the second forward section.|
|Two, of the four sections, welded into place.|
There is still a narrow strip to weld around the counterplate, then the rubbing strake welded above that. Otherwise, there are four more sacrificial anodes and a swim rubbing strake to weld on, then I'll be able to finish the blacking and paint the tunnel bands.
We'll then wait a few days for the blacking to harden before she goes back in the water. HooRah!
