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

A bit more fettling

Mike Gardner and Steve Dean came over today.  Mike continued with the electrics and Steve tackled the stern gland by making sure that the greaser worked and delivered grease to the seal in the stern gland.

We now have a new seal (thanks to David's work on Friday) and Steve's disassembly and reassembly of the greasing mechanism and cleaning the copper pipe it means that the stern gland can be greased easily so - we must all remember to wind the greaser down at the end of cruising each day.

Mike's work on the electrics continues as expected.

There was some discussion as to how best to cover the two big IBC ballast tanks at the rear of the hold - a bit of design/development work was undertaken by Steve and Mike who hope, with help from Rob, to do something before too long.  I will leave it up to them to explain what they have in mind.

Volunteer hours 27 (total 250 to date)
