Deck Repairs 2

Now I have repaired and replaced the 3 Forward Deck Hatches and the other 3 are all repaired ready for re-use.

We move on to the Aft Bulwarks, first having to strip off the Stanchions, then they can be assesed and dis-assembled, new timbers made and all re-jointed, for this I am getting a little help from a professional Shipwright.

Whilst he is doing this I will continue with the forward deck. Removing the windlass (needs repair) then stripping out all the old calking, filling and generally repairing.
