We really enjoyed our time working on Ernest in the shed. It's nice to be part of it at this stage and help free some time for Paul and the guys to get on with the skilled work out in the yard.
It's been an amazingly busy time here for boat repairs. The historic boats seem to be less problematic. Paul can spot exactly what needs doing from the wear marks and pulling rivets. Rot behind the knees, cut it out rebuild it, and weld or rivet as required. Re-black, three days curing and then relaunch and move on to the next one.
