326 Hrs – Centre Panels Glued
Another productive few hours and I have both the centre lower hullside panels glued into position. 400grams of filled adhesive mix per side and all temporarily screwed into position until the glue has set tomorrow.
It seems that we are not going to get a summer this year. Today I drove to the barn in heavy rain and a temperature of 13’C (55’F). June and July have been the wettest on record and long range forecasts don’t give any reason for optimism. Its even more noticeable after spending the holiday in sunny warm Southern France. I don’t want to think about it but I need to consider bringing forward my plans to improve working conditions in the barn with a polythene tented roof and some tarps to keep out the Northerly winds. I don’t want the weather to knock back my work rate too much.
Here’s a photo that sums up our summer so far. Its originally entitled ‘Raindrops On The Gate’
