I couldn't wait for him to get back to strip the rest of the paint off so
I just did it myself. It seems that the planking really isn't too bad after alL.
We'll have to run some of the short planks further forward and a few of the
stealers need changing but there doesn't appear to be any full length to change.
Bit of a relief after all we've changed so far.
I also dropped in a 316 stainless driveshaft to be turned down into the 2 remaining
keelbolts so thats another job in progress.
|Short larch planks, The larch blackens with the heat far quicker than the pitch pine which just boils with resin. We need to stagger these joints out a lot more.|
