The rebirth and conversion of a New Zealand fishing boat-and maybe her further adventures. Other boats and observations will happen from time to time.....

Started adapting the original external muffler casing (funnel) for internal installation around the muffler.The exhaust is planned to go up the centre of the aft end of the wheelhouse and discharge up the mizzen mast which is the old drawn pipe main mast. This will get the exhaust away from the sails -and humans! To this end have cut an access panel in the side which unbolted will enabkle muffler removal.To help reflrct the heat have removed the paint and black soot and will polish the stainless.Need some tabs and nuts welded on.
Meanwhile I continue to make 2 deckhouse roof beams a day.
