…for my Walkabout to see daylight for the first time:
and for me to have more space to fit the second planks from the bottom.This was a couple of months ago. Since then, the planks you can see have been tidied up; the stringers at the top of the planks planed down to give a flat surface for the seat tops. The remaining two top planks have have been cut, as have seat fronts and tops. Hatches for access to the bouyancy tanks have been fitted and seat fronts fitted.I thought I was about to fit the seat tops – which would feel like real progress – but I've spent a while working out how to deal with the stretchers (foot rests for rowing). Making them, cutting and then neatening up is taking an age – it's the small bits that are often so slow! One done, three more started. Then fitting them.I've been waiting to have the seats all fitted before posting a photo, but have just remembered about this picture so putting it up now. Although she looks much the same, I've actually made a lot of progress since then – I keep telling myself!
