Fabrication complete

Build day 26
We went to see Yarwood on Tuesday to sign-off this stage of the build and make the final payment to Lambon Boats.   Yarwood has now been moved out of the Lambon workshops and is now residing in the Barnowl Narrowboats unit until Monday when she goes to the paintshop.  We are told that the first three days next week will see Yarwood cleaned and prepared for painting and then a coat of zinc based primer will be applied.

Yarwood's rudder, a chunky affair with steps to aid you to climb out of the 'drink/ditch' should you be unfortunate enough to fall in..

  1. The bottom "step" on the rudder looks to be sloping down at the back end, is there a reason for that?
