Mason Bay

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.....

Preparing the roof of the wheelhouse, deck saloon and poop deck. It is being treated as a complete roof PLANE and was raised and lowered several times on ropes from the shed roof above. Temparary fore and aft timber straps were screwed to the top of all the beams. Deeper notches cut in the outside fore and aft beams and just correction notches to the inner fore and aft beams to correct for camber. These beams are a continuation of the sides of the original wheelhouse. After a weeks work the lot was finally lowered down on epoxy yesterday - fotos tommorrow.....

  1. That's a really neat tool you're using to cut the notches... I've never seen one before but I think I need one desperately...

  2. Very noisy! 2 of the Boshes packed up and had to replace them - this seems ok vibrates at 4trillion times a second (or something)
