Just a quick post today to show you that the guys have now finished the poly tunnel – the cover is on! These two pictures were taken by Skipper Ian Ruffles and posted on FB by Dave Brooks. This was mainly to try out the cover and make sure they could make it work. It is actually only going to be on for a couple of weeks as we will then be headed for the dry dock and raising the gear again ready for the new season, but at least we know we have a working poly tunnel for the 2014/5 winter. Well done the winter re-fit team and thank you for sharing the pictures.
Dave Brooks reports that, “Due to Cambria arriving at Oare one day later than planned she still awaits jet-washing and anti-fouling. Hence only limited work was possible on the hull this weekend. None the less, Boss of Volunteers, Basil and ‘My Oppo’ Richard Weekes donned wellies and have managed to get the tar scraped and undercoat on where necessary. Also completed this weekend was the painting of the mainmast so that re-rigging can commence next weekend”. Thanks for that, Dave B.
