Chris, George, Jim and Ray all on hand today and lots of progress resulted.
The Lightning was the prime focus:
|Ray sands bench seat inserts...|
|George and Chris rip out the gunnel stock from a 20' Mahogany plank|
|Jim polishing the bronze chainplates|
|Bronze chainplates done!|
Meanwhile a little work got done on the last skiff built on Big Daddy Festival Weekend....
|George marked out the "sculling notch"|
and jig sawed it out...
|Chris begins making the transom "pretty"|
And finally it is time to get the mast and boom for the Lightning down from our spar rack!
|The unseen George feeds the spars to Ray and Chris..|
We sorted out the rigging which looks well done and complete although a few things will have to be replaced. Some of the turnbuckles are a bit agriculteral looking and some fraying has occurred!
All and all a great day in the boatshop!
