After a bit of a slow down through the winter, work on “Hazel” is picking up speed. We’re now 3 planks up, that’s halfway up, though we’re past halfway at the ends as there’s an extra half a plank at each end. We’ve steamed 16 planks, 12 more to go. Today was mostly about bolting the planks to the wrought iron Knees, though Pete Nicholson busied himself with fitting the straight middle plank on the starboard side. Steve the Viking and his partner Liz moved and restacked some of the shearing ready to be run through the planer to have its edges straightened ready for fitting. In the afternoon a hailstorm briefly halted proceedings.
