2009 was when it got serious, work had slowed due in part to the financial crisis. So now with a bare hull and deck on the front lawn i distracted myself building a canopy over the the boat. Big mistake! No sooner had we got the structure up it all had to come back down following a complaint from a guy who lived literally the other side of town - go figure!
So after hiring a crane, chucking the boat in the back garden it was back to rebuilding the port keel and stripping the hull and deck of every fitting ready for the gel strip and rebuild.
