Productive day on Mai-Star II

The three planks on the starboard side that were causing a number of problems with leaking water passed the stem joint.

The main problem being that the fixings on the stem had given way and the ends of the planks were damaged by repeated attempts to refix the planks .

The three planks have all got scarf joints cut on them so it is just a matter of making up the new short lengths of planking and refixing them in place after the old fixing holes are plugged with wooden dowels 

The first two ribs refitted in place now have to nail them and the rove them.

The third rib in place and just got one left to do on that side in the cabin.

The electric circuit panel powered up and ready to fit the rest of the instrument wiring to it
