New Year and new Projects to come to the yard.

After a bit of a delayed start back to work, it is now coming together again. over the coming months there a lot of new projects to get done especailly the restoration of Mai-Star II which as been on the back burner for sometime as other committments.

So while some jobs have moved along, others have had to be put on hold, such the work on the Hardy Navigator and the Mai-Star class dinghy. All of which have been laying around the yard and not been able to be worked on because of different reasons. This should all be behind us and we can get on and get the projects underway again and get the boats out of doors of the workshop and back to their owners or up for sale whichever is the course of action.

The Shetland Family Four is now nearing the end of its refit and should be going up on the market shortly so the get boat can come into the workshop to get sorted.

End of another busy week at the Workshop

It is now the end of another busy week down at the workshop with a number of jobs done on the Family Four cruiser. The cabin is now lined out ready for the cabin lockers and bunk fronts ready to go back in as soon as they are retrimmed and reapairerd as necessary. All the wiring apart from the steaming light are done and have been tested and the new automatic bilge pump and float switch are fitted, only the pipe work to fit and the skin fitting to be fitted in the aft end of the boat to finish hat job off.  There as been a few boat movements around the yard to make room for the other boats coming to the yard for work to be done of the winter and for storage. During this time the team will make a start on Mai Star II and get her refit underway and get her work booked in around the other boats we have in to work on over the coming months. So it is going to be busy time in the run up to Christmas and into the new year.
