LAUNCH DATE SET FOR 1 ST OF APRIL (12.00 HRS ISH) 2022
Wednesday Phil and Wally still working 3 or 4 days a week to make sure the launch date can be achieved.
Wally had to make wooden bearings of different sizes to fit in each wheel as their centres were different sizes. These were then fitted to the cradle with wooden spacers either side of the wheel for smooth running.
Wednesday Phil meanwhile ,removed the one and a quarter inch outlet valves from the cockpit drains and replaced them with two inch ones which will allow faster draining if needed.
The final section of the keel band was brought by Jeremy and after " Wally welding" was finally secured by Phil.
