The first of the hatch beams was cut and laminated today; I only have two more to make, then all the beams will be ready for fitting when the time comes. The cabin beams will need shaping to line up with the corner posts and angled to support the Perspex windows at the front and rear of the cabin.
This afternoon Classic Marine posted the bronze ring nails and other bits and pieces for the boat; they are due to arrive on Wednesday of next week, and wood from Robbins should also be delivered the same day. This coming Bank Holiday Monday has meant both deliveries will be delayed. As yet, the second-hand sail from Glen Maxwell in America has not arrived. He posted it on the 18th; therefore it has been 8 days in transit. Perhaps it’ll arrive tomorrow.
