65560 – cont'd

I decided to make up a new panel for the Bow today, then changed my mind, then I found a piece of Oak in the shed, so decided to make two Quarter-knees to replace the original ply panel and strut.

Clamped temporarily here:

I'll screw these through the gunnels from the outside, same as the transom knees.

I also mounted the Jib Sheet Fairleads and Cam blocks to a ply board which I will then screw to the side-bench:

Three coats of Woodskin now applied to the rest of the woodwork. Paint on order for the cockpit floor; various SS fittings/screws on order; Ensign ordered :)

Feels like (re) launch day is not too far away...
