Bowsprits and surveys

Last couple of days have been cold in Rye. That doesn’t hold us back. Alan has been making ( or re-making) the old navigation table and working on the starboard quarter berth. He has also been renovating the teak trim around the cabin roof which looks wonderful.

Carrie and I have been cleaning up and fitting the bowsprit. This was a tight squeeze and I well recall the comments when we were fitting the deck at the bow. Access was very tight and arms are not long enough.

Lastly marine surveyor Chris has been giving Anne Marie the once over with his measuring stick. The hull is very strong so it seems and we have done well with our building so far. He will be back again for a full survey before launch!

Anne Marie (aka Mike Stephens)

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.
