At last, it’s time to bolt the ballast keel to the bottom of the boat - before we sail off without it! Auger bits get welded, counterbores get sharpened, and a series of huge holes are drilled through hardwood and lead before Aluminium-Bronze bolts are driven in.
In other exciting news, we lift the engine into the boat, paint the engine beds and bilge, cut an access hatch, and fit the stanchions - it’s been a busy couple of weeks!
