Wedges

You know how some people keep things ” just in case”. Well here is a great example of why such a philosophy is important. 

Many years ago I laid a new floor at cherry tree farm – one of those floating ones that are so the rage. I bought a pack of wedges to keep it in place as it is laid and then I put them in the garage convinced that one day they would be useful. 

Well here they are keeping the hull and deck apart while I clean out the roots and old rubbish that has gradually filled the gap and allowed the water to get in. Tomorrow the sealant goes in and the two parts are bolted together. 

I’ll put them back in the garage later.   Just in case.

I am a well traveled, globe-trotting vessel with great lines. I am told I give a comfortable ride for my years. Although a little worn out I am looking forward to getting back onto the water after a full service.
