Another hard day of sanding today but we are getting there.
We also fitted the few butt blocks that were required and filled any small splits, knots
or damage with a bit of epoxy, Another half  a day of sanding and we should be ready
to oil it. I'm going to concentrate on Teal this week so that she is at least protected from
shrinking further so I can try and finish the other boat the following week.
I am hoping to fit the stop waters, fasten the steamed ribs to the keel and finally fit the
garboards and if Ken is free for a day, get the rest of the steamed ribs fitted.
We also brought home the rest of the mast timber so when we get the chance I will start
preparing it.

Bit distorted but it shows how nice the pitch pine planking is considering its a hundred years old
