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 painting ...and polishing....and blacking.... and oiling

Quite a bit of work on Sculptor this week mainly the little jobs that we all seem to overlook so in no particular order:

  • Painting: Finishing of the fore end painting (almost). The main part of the repainting of the fore end has been done - with many thanks to Mike Partridge who did run a boat painting business some years ago - it's made all the difference to the fore end. Just the 'half moon' bit to be painted at the rear of each top bend now once the dark red has hardened.
  • Polishing: All the brass has been polished - it will need a bit more from time-to-time but hopefully Sculptor will look on top form the Family Festival and Braunston Historic gathering.
  • Blacking: No not the hull but the Epping stove in the back cabin - looks so much better now. 
  • Oiling: In preparation for changing the engine and reduction box oils and the engine oil filter all the consumables have been purchased and we are ready to go on that on Friday of this week. 
Volunteer hours 10 (total 814 to date)
