another busy week at J-Star Boat Services

This last week as been a busy week with lots of projects on the go, good progress being made on the restoration dinghy "Jasmine" with the thwart stringers having been made and put in the boat ready to be clinched in place. All the nails that had not been clinched while the boat was on its trailer have now been done. The ends of the planks where they finish on the transom have now been finished and sanded. Now it is just the last two planks on the port side forward to do and two ribs and the owner can then take the boat and start sanding and varnishing and painting and get it ready to go sailing again.

Good progress is being made on the Princess 25 refit with new bulkheads now getting dry fitted together ready for them to be covered in Formica and then put back in the boat and then
trimmed. The fuel tank is now out and will be sent away to have a new one made out of stainless steel. The engine bay has now been painted out and the last of the old fuel system as now been removed ready for the new fuel system to be put in. Shortly the new windows will arrive and then the boat will be weather tight for the first time in a number of years.

Also the work on the enterprise dinghy and Mai-Star II is just ticking away in the back ground with little bits done between other jobs.
