Ready for ballast

We finished out the framing today, fitted the last new floor, sealed over all the
bolt heads on the underside of the keel and faired off the top of the ballast
with cement so its all ready to go back on. Hopefully we can get the
forklift free later in the week to lift it in place. We are also going to set her up
by her waterline when the ballast is on and support her with the hull clear for
Heres a few of Ken's pics of recent work in progress.

Cutting doubling pieces, Piskie in the back ground

It was a rare hot day, so a pre-war hillyard provided shade.
