What with One Thing (the garden) and Another (work, mostly, and vacation. And haymaking.) I am really behind on updating this blog.
There's been a bit of time away from Tiger, too, as Robbie and Trevor do a few things for Penna. Here are a couple of images from today:
|The oiled cockpit -- much lower than the one it replaced. On the right you can see a winch, installed on a new winch-base -- there's another one on the other side. The whole boat looks terrific and now, with no engine, doesn't smell like old diesel.|
Here we are looking intrepid and seaworthy this morning. I am not sure I should tell you that we lounged about and went out for lunch.
There has been lots of progress on Tiger. A lot of it -- things like the beam chocks -- are exciting for us to see but don't make such lively blog images. Nonetheless, here's a few images of what has been happening on the boat.
|Here you can see the cutouts for the beams.|
|And here the line of sanding where the lashing strake will go. (Well, "has gone" by now.)|
|Here's our terrific neighbour Russ, who came over to help with the sanding.|
