Well progress continues on the restoration of a river cruiser that’s in the yard at the moment. Most of the progress is not very visible but you will notice that the boat now has a rubrail. This needed a little bit of jiggery pokery to get it to wrap around the bulbous bow but it should look good once I shape the laminations to the final form. I’ve to trim the plugs and do some paint touch-ups. I can always know that I’m close to the end of a project when the list of things to do perversely starts getting longer and longer.
Yes I took the photo in the dark and rain so apologies for the quality. The picture below is of the canopy that will eventually cover the cockpit it’s just had its first coat of undercoat so it’s not looking great.
Please excuse the messy workshop it’s another indicator of a project coming to and end. The bigger the mess the closer the end. Anyway if you are interested in having your own boat restored, built or repaired why not contact Tiernan Roe, by phoning +353 (0)28 38973 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
