Third Week in October 2019
Keith starts work on thwarts at forward and aft ends of the steam system compartment, These rest on top of bulkheads and the last set of clamps. He’s already tacked down a copper sheet to the bulkhead which is nearest the boiler.
Meanwhile Jim2 has been working on the aft deck. We’ll cover portions of the deck that provide attachments for fittings such as tiller stops and chocks and covers, but leave other portions open so visitors can see construction details.
