2718Hrs – Still Beaming
Unbelievably it was 5’C when I drove to the barn this morning. We had heavy wind and rain last night. Cornwall and Devon had snow on the moors and Falmouth harbour experienced gusts of 60mph and one of the biggest swells in 20 years. Luckily there was relatively little damage though.
I hesitate to make light of what could after all have been a genuine disaster but I had to smile at the story of the Falmouth Coastguard responding to reports of “a square rigged vessel around the foot of the cliffs at Stack Point”. On arrival they discovered someones garden gazebo that had been whisked away in the wind!
Anyway I’m choosing to ignore the fact that Spring has still not fully arrived and I cracked on with more work on the beams.
Today I’ve made and fixed the six hardwood end caps, made and fixed the anchor rode protector strip on the forward beam and made and fixed the four hardwood ramp hinge mounts on the aft beam.
I count that as a good days work.
Here are a couple of photos of the end caps.
The anchor rode protector.
And lastly a couple of shots of the stern ramp mounts.
