Raking again

More raking and the deck is pretty much prepped bar the bit round the wheel and under the tarps. Very pleased and we did actual find a couple of pieces of caulking cotton. No photos of the work in progress, nor documented evidence of the severe sunburn we got after a day on deck. Instead a picture of lunch on deck…   

Winchelsea beach after we’d finished (not quite warm enough for a swim).  

And the big tin of jizer that will get scrubbed into the engine room on Friday. 😁

      Hi John! Great to hear from you – it is fantastic to hear from anyone who remembers beta III or knows anything about her. I was only around on Monday last week so must have missed you.
      I would love to see any photos you have – my email
      Is helen_symonds@hotmail.com if you are able to send them by email.
      Do come by when you are back in September. It would be great to meet you and hopefully I will have some more progress to show you by then!
      All the best
