Lots To Blog Today Busy, Busy, Busy

Well what a busy day.

First I brushed off the roof that was gritted yesterday.  I think the pictures say it all.

 I'm very pleased with the finish, paint it next

Then I set too with gritting the port gunwale.  I had previously marked the line so this morning it was masking.

The masking and shaping took about 2 hours believe it or not, this was shown live on the new Live Stream at the top of the page.  More on that later.

All then needed to do was to apply the paint and grit.  

This time course carborundum

Later in the afternoon my brother turned up to add some more stone surfaces to the boat.

The first job on this was to make a support to take the cantilever of the breakfast bar.  This was done about a week ago in preperation.

First I drilled 4 x 20mm holes in the work surface and made some hooks from 10mm studding.

 The hooks then passed in to the holes

The hooks were then used to anchor down a length of 4 x 2 which was also glued down.

So all that was left to do was put the stone on.


Then a pre-made ply infill was screwed onto the the surface of the cladding.

On to which the top surface and the finished breakfast bar was glued.

Da Dah!

I have to confess to breaking a bit of the thin cladding.  But my brother managed to re-join it and it won't even show. Clever sod!

Then to the bedroom. 

Cimstone (man made stone)
with mother of pearl & tigers eye flecks

There is one of these each side and there will be some upstands to be fitted later.

And so the the Live Streaming.

This is my iPad which I've made up a holder for it and mounted it on a tripod.
