Holiday progress day 14: oh no more cockpit work

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.
