802Hrs – British Beef
Usually the Easter holidays signal the end of Winter. It’s not unusual to get the first sunny and warm days of the year. It ain’t gonna happen this year! Easter is early and the forecast is for freezing temperatures and wintry showers…. Fantastic! No psychological boost just yet. Already the temperatures have dropped back so during a break in tonights work I warmed myself up with a cup of steaming hot Bovril. I recently re-discovered this fantastic beef extract drink made just up the road in the brewery town of Burton-upon-Trent, just the job on nights like this. I will make sure Gleda is well stocked with Bovril when I set sail!
As I have got the port hull all prepared for paint and access hatch fitting and covered over to keep the dust out I have started on the starboard hull tonight, working forward from the stern, as before methodically preparing components for installation, sanding and filleting as I go. I’m looking forward to making some real progress over the holidays despite the @*&!ing weather!
