Boat Stuff

Boat technicalities, practicalities and experiences

ship wreck

This weekend has been very eventful.  Tom, Stuart and Kath have got in there and started the tankless task, and it seems to be going ok.  It’s now turned the boat into building site.  We discovered lots of diesel and have decanted it into 8 steel drums which we’ll use to create elaborate boat style decorations with after (maybe).  Or we’ll start a roof-top steel band during the summer months.  We’ve been told the boat won’t explode in the interim so fingers crossed.

a tankless task

yes.  here they are… the tanks. I’ve become a boat geek but as no one reads this (except you, dad) it doesn’t matter! hah!

These have got to come out because they are rotten and horrible.  So a poor soul has nominated himself to do it and then this weekend we’ll be scrubbing the inner lining of the hull with our delicate un-boatly fingers and making it cleaner.  And less damp.  Which is always a good way for a boat to be. Bet you can’t wait for the next installment! WHAT WILL HAPPEN??? Will the boat sink? Will there be dead things in the bottom? Will the tanks rebel and protest at being welded out??  At this stage: NO ONE KNOWS.
