Looking aft down thru where the cabin will go. Soles of evening saloon and under double bunk have first coay of floor paint and beams now have primer, undercoat and one topcoat on.Much better doing it now with the 'lid' off. Going to Auckland tomorrow for glue and 4 6v batteries. marcus will start fairing the beams and bulkheads and then T&G and later 12mm ply. Have decided NO fibreglassing to deck.
Earlier in week I had to glue packers to all the old forward deck beams, as over the 55 years they are a bit flat in camber. Will mow off and fair all the foredeck beams Momday.
