Saturday 28-November-2017 is Sculptor's 82nd birthday

Sculptor - a boat built by boat builders rather than a boat built by ship builders - and so much more elegant for that.

Sculptor is a 'Star' class boat named for the Sculptor Constellation

More mid-week working

Water from the bilges coming out
of Sculptor in the right place
The bilge pump deep in
the bowels of the Sculptor
Mick Gardner has today done some work on permanently fitting a 12v bilge pump and tidying up the cabling and piping for the pump.  It now means we can get rid of the little bit of water that comes in through the stern gland without having to resort to putting the 240v submersible pump into action and we can give the pump back to its rightful owner.

At the moment we need to connect the pump via two bulldog clips but when the wiring issues are addressed there'll be a switch available.

I have agreed, for a small fee, not to publish the photo of Mick G standing in the engine room door hole looking as if he is attending to mother nature!

Volunteer hours 9 (total 138 to date)
