The cabin sides are now being constructed from the iroko we planed down last week. Shipwright Dave is building the port (left) side and apprentice Dave the starboard (right).
After much fitting ,tweeking and refitting, the planks are now being glued and screwed into place.
The cabin is now taking shape .
It is surprising how much space there is inside.
Pat brought meat pies , crackers and hats . Dave produced the chips and salt and vinegar.
Apprentice Dave sat on his own... traumatized by an horrific apparition.
CHILDREN SHOULD BE SUPERVISED BEFORE VIEWING THE NEXT PHOTO................
While Wednesday Phil ,being on a diet to protect his slender physique ,only ate pie and chips!
Whilst enjoying our party, we occasionally popped our heads over the side to surprise passers by causing double takes from the confused visitors.
What fun we had !
And due to our considerate natures, we even allowed FANG our guard dog to join in........
Our thanks to Pat and Dave for the grub!
And as we prepare to close for the holiday, we would like to thank all our sponsors, supporters and friends for their continued support and to say..........
FROM ALL ON THE HELEN II PROJECT
