Starboard Hull Repairs Well Underway

Now that work has been completed on the hull's port side attention has turned to re-plating the starboard side and it's a big job.

The whole length of the boat will need to be re-plated - We cannot thank SSE enough for this superb work!

Rusted Rudders - What a Nightmare!

Restoration work is great when it goes well - but when the going gets tough it can be very difficult indeed! This proved to be the case when our trusty team of volunteers at the SSE Uskmouth Power Station had to 'coax' the rudders free from their housings.

But they were not to be defeated as the photo below of the empty rudder pin housing shows!
