Yesterday it was time for the new rubbing strakes to be drilled and placed, then removed once more for oiling before final placement.

With Bob needing to get to the bolt holes in order for the new to be placed, the boat looks like a disaster zone, as kitchen panels and radios have been removed and other items stowed where ever there was a free space. It was a three man job – two on the outside – many thanks to Dave and John -and Bob on the in. Photos of th event will be coming.
