I am going to make use of the photo album feature tonight, to bring you 5 nice pictures taken by Dave Brooks of the newest improvements to Cambria, the results of all that hard work in the winter re-fit season, variously by our shipwrights (the hawse equipment and vent system) and John the Joiner (the new cabin on the port aft corner of the main hold).
Pic 1) The (grey primer painted) “hawse” hole through the starboard for’d rail to take mooring lines.
Pic 2) Looking forward from the galley into the bow ‘heads’, the black vent pipe will take fumes etc from the heads and showers (which are on the port side) up through the deck on the starboard side, between the life-raft and the companionway (emerging at picture 5)
Pic 3) New cabin built in port aft corner of the main hold to give some privacy to the hammock-sleeper(s)
Pic 4) Hawse hole through rear rail / taff rail / saddle-chock to take mooring lines.
You will have already seen pictures of our other main events, the creation and installation of the main mast winch drums and the new (fixed) bits of rigging.
