3366Hrs – Another Point Of View
A (mostly) fun work session today, I decided I’d done enough messing about with all the engine box components on trestles, chairs and work benches, so I decided to get everything reassembled back onto the boat. I figured I could quite happily finish off the remaining bits and pieces with the boxes in situ.
As before, it took a bit of ingenuity and not a little cussing to get the heavy and awkward engine boxes up into place and secured with the stainless rods, and once I’d done that there was a bit more of the same before I was able to fit the engine wells.
Once the boxes and wells were in place I decided to cut up some of the old flooring grade chipboard I had kicking round in the barn and make a temporary centre deck to sit on the temporary bearers I’d already cut.
It didn’t take long before I was able to stand and look at the boat from yet another previously unseen position. Once again a long period of work has suddenly come together in a way that gives me a completely new perspective.
I like these moments.
Here are the pictures, you can also see an eBay purchase collected yesterday. Primary propulsion devices for the tender 🙂
