    Ha! Now you’re getting there..Keep at it, Neil.
    I have wires inside my mast (lights and VHF) and they certainly do ring like a bell. It’s very annoying. The more of those padding discs you fit on your internal cables, the better. I’ve even thought about putting them every 5cm when I next get the mast down. It’s an important job that you did today.
    And soon, Gleda will be calmly floating out on a mooring, 24 /7.

    Quasi afloat! Well waddaya know………………..

  3. hi Neil.
    Hope you are well.

    nearly Afloat then?

    I hope you have checked all the little places for water leaks?

    I am glad you are still finding a use for the Broadgate foam!!!

    I am currently making a path at home out of some!!! Recycling at its best.

    Regards Charlie.

    Try using electrical zip ties on the inside wiring for the mast. If you pull them tight to the cable and do not cut off the excess they will not slide down and the excess prevents the banging on the inside of the mast, Alternate how you tie them so effectively you get a star effect all the way down the wiring inside the mast. A very simple and effective technique.

    Congrats – she is a proper boat now – you must be itching to get out and sail!

    Now the seasickness begins!!

    You need another large gathering onboard, get them all up the sharp end(s) to lift the skegs out.

    Looking good Neil. With the weather improving, the boat floating, you’re moving forward. Enjoy it.

    Hi Charlie, no leaks just a slightly weeping through hull fitting that just needed tightening. What do you know she floats!

    Nice idea that but job’s done now so hopefully it’ll work as well.
