It's been a while since the last blog post and we are patiently waiting on a southerly wind to sandblast the keel but - we are still waiting!!!
Lucky we have so many other jobs to do that we don't go crazy just yet waiting for this change in wind direction! The 'break' from the keel meant we could make a move on the Nav station, setting up our batteries and solar power, as well as finishing off the lighting inside.
While this was quite exciting to see the switchboard jump to life along with the Mastervolt and Raymarine gadgets...it was also time to tackle the remaining interior while we are waiting to sandblast the keel. So yes - demolition time once again...
And then of course grinding follows the demolition phase before the rebuild starts. By the end of the weekend the new sole supports and bulkheads are glued and glassed in and the first area painted where the first part of the sole (floor) will be glued in.
While it is frustrating waiting for the wind to change, we are quite excited to tackle the last area inside the boat even though it brings back the much dreaded grinding and dust! Once again we have to give the next area some thought and figure out how to make use of the space. Either way - heaps to keep us busy (and out of trouble) and more building and photos on the horizon so watch this space xxx
