HI Ian,

We have had only minor local flooding (Water cutting off roads for a few hours) and some areas where it will take a while to go down.
The northern passenger rail line got washed away last week and cut off all rail traffic but was fixed within the day.

I live on a hill so the water doesn't effect us much unless we are driving anywhere.

We have had over 1400 mm from start of December to now.

Hi all,
Well I have managed to get back to moving forward on the Belle.
Has been a while since any progress has been made.
I have been buying some bits and pieces when I can, I am now on a better work roster which should allow me some build time.
Pics of dry fitting of rub rail and pop up cleats, installed hinges
For hatch (needs a bit more work around hatch area).
Next is sand and stain.

Welcome back Jamie. Pass on my regards to your dad. I am doing the flip on my boat this week-end.

Welcome back Jamie. It's funny how we all go through these slumps. Important thing is to keep moving forward On days when I absolutely do not feel like doing anything, I will go out and do something for 15 minutes. Small steps, but it moves me forward and I feel a bit better about it.

Thanks guys,

Well still moving forward.
I managed to sand the top, mask and tape, stain the cover boards and king plank and one coat of CPES on the top to seal up, next trip home I will be applying a few more coats then caulking

Another couple with cpes
Timber inlay looks red in the pics but it does match the rest of boat, must be the lighting, I had also just applied cpes to this section

Couple of pics of my first attempt at epoxy filling between planks.
Very happy, hoping to finish the rest in the coming days!

Jenko, Looks great. If you didn't say it was your first attempt, I never would have guessed.
