Getting down and dirty in the bilges and getting on with restorations and new builds

Getting the deadwood out of the yacht and now see why it was leaking.

All but one had rusted away to nothing and the onlt thing holding in position was the sterntube and it connection to the gearbox.

The hull that was in the mould refused to come out in one piece so it was decided cut it out so we can make a new dinghy to our own spec.

Mean while fitting the new seats to the old dinghy in for a general restoration/rebuild 

The edges are all sanded back to take the matting and seal the seat/ buoyancy tanks in position 

The 8ft dinghy mould all cleaned out and ready to be release waxed and then be able to start moulding a new dinghy.
