This week hull repairs have been almost completed, as has preparation of the deck for repainting. The hull/keel join has been reinforced with several layers of heavy fibreglass. The new fibreglass layers of the hull have been laid up. Inspection of the stainless steel stemhead, inner forestay chainplate, tiller bracket and mast compression post base plate have shown they are in poor condition. They are being replaced.
