    There doing a good job on the Wheelhouse, also stripping the deck to oil it again. Were taking the " easy" route and building the deck house over most of it??

    Good to see work progressing on these boats. They are not all abandoned projects. Will try to call in at the yard on my next trip up in a couple of weeks.  Wheelhouse does look good.

    your timberheids have been wearing plastic bags for quite a time now
    have you checked any lately to see if they're sweating?

    Little wonder you haven't gotten around to the cappings given the huge wheelhouse job, etc

    The timber heads might be getting whacked off
    next year Jay, and getting replaced with stanchions. Jurys still out on that one. Having built the framework to support the saloon roof we reckon we can hold T dances onboard soon and give the Waverly some competition??? Just about to order the gubbins for the deck, will post pics of the split deck and repositioned " funnel" when we close up the hole above the engine and finish the trunking for the exhaust.
    Really good to see this,well done.
