The beginnings of a new deck on Deilginis.
Working from the keel upwards, we have finally come to the satisfying work of laying the deck. The coamings are fitted first, followed by the King plank. The greatest challenge is to make it all work out symmetrically with even planking and the gaps for the black sikaflex pleasing and regular.
The damaged ribs have been replaced , and some of the other ribs refastened. with this work done, the hull is now ready to repaint.
