2012 - A pause in the proceedings.

Thanks in part to a contract on the IOW, work on the boat slowed to zilch in the early part of this year but with more breaks later on in the year as work ground to a halt some progress got made. Got on sheathing the keels and hull, the keels because the weather had partially destroyed the epoxy coating due to the iron expanding underneath. 

So not for the first time it was back to the drawing board by way of chopping the dead bits of keel away super-heating them and eventually vacuum bagging three layers of cloth over each one to isolate from the elements. The real highlight towards the end of the year was bolting the keels back on.
