GETTING READY FOR OPEN WEEKEND 24th 25th October 2015
If you are down for the Conwy Feast come and see Helen II for free !
This was the view at 9-00am today.Most of the internal walls (bulk heads ) are in place and work on the bunks has begun.
In the right photo, the space between the two bulk heads will house the chart table and beneath it the sink.
This is the view towards the bow showing bunks 1,2 and 3.
Volunteer Pat prepares the stern section for the open weekend cleaning and painting exposed wood, but disaster struck when it was discovered Pat had not baked and thus no cake today !
Meanwhile Wednesday Phil and apprentice Dave decided to trial the forward bunks for fitness of purpose.
Dave was at first a little shy and reticent...so Wednesday Phil explained he was perfectly safe as he wasn't a young blonde goddess !
Dave said I could relax as I didn't
look a bit like "SKIPPY the bush kangaroo" .
( Dave being an Australian from a very lonely place.)
Thak goodness he didn't notice my bib pocket !
Shipwright Dave muttered something and continued work on bunks
4 and 5 in the main cabin.
At the end of the day, we all relaxed and observed the week's progress with satisfaction.
We are looking forward to showing Helen II to visitors this week end.
All are welcome !
