Busy end to the first week into the New Year

The ongoing servicing of the motor launch engine as brought a common problem with boat engines that have not been winterized when not used for a long time.

The diesel goes cloudy due to moisture in the fuel tank because it was not filled up to prevent moisture building up in the fuel tank. The next job is to remove the fuel from the fuel tank and remove the tank from the boat and flush it out. Then flush the fuel lines through to remove any dirty fuel from the system.

The decks are now completely covered in sheathing and just needs a light keying up and the second coat of epoxy to seal the deck sheathing before protecting the interprotect primer

The gunwales arew now glued up to to make up the total length of the boat plus a small amount
