It's the last minute bits and pieces that were being progressed today, another coat of paint here and another coat of oil for the worktops in the galley and some sealer where the cushion floor meets the galley units.
Stuart got me to stand on the steerer's step and measured me against the tiller, cutting another inch off it's length so that it felt comfortable. Joe has brought back a couple of cans of blacking to get them warm enough so he get another coat on Yarwood tomorrow. The workshop is bitterly coat and the blacking is far too cold to apply with roller or brush, a trowel might work but who wants a stuccoed boat?

This morning I drove up to Kinver to see Wilson's to get a cover made for Yarwood's tunnel lamp and they will deliver the cover next Tuesday when they deliver our new chairs.
Tomorrow Dave Moore returns to complete the back cabin decoration and bring back Yarwood's newly painted pigeon box for fitting and that about completes the build, next step, the launch.
