Margin planks are off

Yesterday Kyle and Marius came down to take off the margin planks. These were shot in places, particularly along the bow, and are to be replaced. This also means that bits of the planks can be used to patch the decks and the metal lip underneath them can be blasted and painted and replaced right at the prow of the boat.

Here is the teak that was removed – some bolt holes and a few raggedy bits but in the whole reusable.
