Today Jane finished two important tasks on the cockpit drains project.
First, she filled the last gaps in the joints between the new lips (upstands) and the old grp lip & flange with thickened epoxy.
Then she painted the bottom of the cockpit floor.
Meanwhile I was removing some trim in the saloon which was stopping the cushions fitting properly.
Then I started on the replacement forward drains. Had to make some backing plates, cut for a flush fit and clean a century’s dirt.
These are ready for hoses. Before that we have to paint around the large aft drains; fit the rubber sealing strip and bolt down the cockpit floor.
This evening a gentle walk into Beaumaris for fish and chips. Absolutely worn out now.
