First report 12 05 09

A lot of action in the yard yesterday, Feverishly painting Quest getting ready for her spring launch, under Joe's supervision. All credit to Jem for crawling underneath to do the antifoul!

Also David was busy trying to rescue the library from the rising damp in shed2.

A landmark was reached in the restoration of Linnet, construcion work was finished with the fitting of the stem plate and I rigged upthe mast and hoisted the sail to celebrate! All it needs now is sanding and painting.

We had a first look at the Tideway dinghy we've just been given, a promising project if we have space.

I haven'tgot any workshop pictures so here are a couple of shots of the Yachting Monthly Senior I owned in the 70's.
