Feb / Mar 08 update:-

There have been a few more visits onboard with those snagging weekends progressing well.  Our snagging list is now down 22.  Quite a lot of folk have said that the snagging list will never be finished and that it will be an on-going list.

Not So,  we will finish this restoration once and for all – sometime.  I appreciate that there will be maintenance and the yearly maintenance list to attend to, but this snagging list is a once only list of items that have never been sorted as of yet

So what’s been achieved then?    1) The outside of the raised shower threshold has had its 6 x coats of varnish.   2) Decorative plate hung and tagged.   3) Adjusted 100amp alternator drive belt.   4) Wheelhouse curtains are now finished,  and in use during the evenings.  5)  Two upholstered ‘sound arresters’ for the sash sides are now in place.  6)  The helms chair is now complete and has been upholstered (Fendoff has got his chair back – Thanks Fendoff).  7) Wheelhouse lamp upgrade to halogen completed.

There have of course been other items that have come to light and been sorted pronto and therefore were never listed.

New Issues:-  Fender Socks – we have given up with these and removed them. They turned out to be a bad idea, they were a dirt trap for collecting leaves n twigs and stopped us cleaning our pristine white fenders, added to that the returned edges insisted on coming undone and looking tatty. So we have taken them off and got rid.
There is also a hull leak, well more of a weep actually from right down aft that we are aware of. I’m now just about convinced where the leak is and by this forthcoming snagging weekend I will have pinpointed it. It is not too bad of course and the 2 x Bilge pumps barely notice it, but it does need addressing.
The Port rubbing strip is opening up from the deck in places and also on both corners of transom. This is of course caused by the fact that ‘B.A’ was out of the water for 5 ½ years and therefore dried out good n proper (Which of course for a wooden boat is not so good) now that she has been back in her natural environment for 7 x months and has been rained on once or twice(?????) and of course used, she is settling down tightening/swelling etc.
Once we are sure she is fully happy with herself we will address the said areas that need addressing,  probably have a lift out and do the lot over a long weekend at the end of the season, that will give her plenty of time to settle etc.
Steering - seems a bit heavy for our girls to manage, and it does indeed need a firm hand, especially when manoeuvring and going astern. We will investigate all the couplings/Bowden cable/bearings/grease points etc this coming weekend and discuss. Jason form SOS24:7 will also be assisting us with this.  We have lightly been discussing changing over to a hydraulic system, but no decision as of yet, further info to follow once inspection completed.




Outstanding Items:-
Galley - 1) It was brought to our attention by a Corgi LPG gas fitter that the pipes in the galley are not quite correct, however he did state that they were within BSS guidelines and legal etc. With this in mind we will seek professional advice from said fitter via Jason of SOS24:7 and get it upgraded, best practise and all that.
Aft Passageway -  2) Obtain and fit 2 x non-slip brass protectors to door thresholds, 10 x 500 and 30 x 570.  3) Obtain / Fit door handle mechanism.  4) clean Aft bilges inc. well deck bilge and inspect
Fwd Cabin -   5) Fit privacy roller catches to doors
Wheelhouse - 6) Fit 2nd Fire extinguisher on Pt side aft of step.  7) Repair cracked rib under driveshaft.  8) Obtain and fit aluminium dressing strip for under Stbd seat, 20mmx5mmx1:6mm.  9) Make and fit magazine rack  (10) Make and fit book rack.  11) Design/make display unit for Harold’s hat and badge collection
Engine/Room - 12) Fit replacement bleed nut.  13) Rub down ‘Orange Peel’ on rocker box re-paint and apply sticker.
14)  Fit New Vetus sender in ‘T’ piece in hose – Jason of SOS24:7 is on with this one.  15) Fit 2 x 240v engine room heaters for winter periods.  16) Fit 12v 3ft strip lamp with hooks to engine room area.  17) Re-site Mikuni fuel pump closer to heater and Lower down, tidy/loom wring
Curtains - 18)  ¼ berth rod arrangement needs looking at.
Upper Deck - 19)  Design and order Syndicate flag 12 x 14”.   20)  Dress Port deck seam with white sikaflex.  21) Change all co-ax connectors to the soldered type on aerial fittings
Wet-Shed -  22) Continue with secure locker arrangement at our berth.


An item that we have decided not to do now is the hanging of plastic sheeting above our berth. Unlike some of the other craft in the wet-shed we do not seem to be suffering too badly with rust particles landing onboard. Maybe it’s  because we are nearer to the door and the particles don’t have time to accumulate, don’t really know just grateful.

Photo’s – Lots taken but since I have bought a new ‘pooter, and am now using and trying to get to grips with ‘Vista’ I have lost the ability to re-size photo’s via the ‘Powertoy’ I’ll have to get help/advice on this yet again.

A further in depth report with bookings calendar, shopping list, forthcoming events etc will be e-mailed separately to those on the info list in due course

Griff! I use a free program called Pix resizer, it's vista compatable, and it lets you resize single pics, whole folders, or batches of them,, and the best bit is it's very easy to use,,,,

Hi All,

on the beg for information yet again.

Fendoff has been a big help sorting out an aluminium edging strip for Blackburns.  Unfortunaley they cannot provide the milled strips of brass we need to cover our door thresholds.

B&Q only do the thin cruved anodised stuff and it is to wide anyway.

Anyone got any ideas please??

Griff

Hi Griff

If you go to http://www.genesis-aps.com/products.php you might find what you are looking for.

Once you have found what you are looking for then feel free to go to www.alltile.co.uk and give me a call as we are the agents for Genesis and i can get you anything from them that you may need.

Hi chaps,

Thanks for the feedback.

Flash - Had look round the genesis products - no good I'm afraid, they don't carry/stock/produce what I'm after. I do often use Genesis edging myself when I'm Tiling etc

Dave, Not very good at drawing on a 'pooter BUT herewith where to view:-

If you go back a few posts to Fendoff on Feb06 @ 3:59pm and click on the mouldings link. Then scroll down to the pace headed 'Edgings and Nosings' and look at item 304.  That is what I'm after in solid brass.  2 x Pieces with the following dimensions:-

10 x 500mm  and 30 x 570mm

I have also tried to attache a picture showing item 304 with this posting - Nope tried copying and pasting and the system won't let me - Sorry

Thanks in advance

Griff

Hi Griff
I have spent some time surfing and can't find anything the right size. It seems you have two choices, buy a flat bar and get the ridges milled or buy a milled strip to wide and cut it down.

From C.A.T. Ltd is a 50 mm wide feature strip and 2.5 mm thick. They say they do bespoke work so perhaps they could machine or guillotine to width. Otherwise I reckon you could do it by hand. Drill holes for fixing and bolt to a steel angle and then cut or grind off and then file back using the steel angle as a straight edge. Even a belt sander ought to do it as well. You can get metal cutting blades for a Dewalt radial arm saw and do it but the cost of the blade and finding a machine to borrow probably knocks that one on the head.

Download CAT product catalogue and look at page 22 BN10 Feature plate.

Flat brass strip in lots of different sizes from Arenastock. Download product catalogue and see page 50.

Fendoff - you are a star matey, thanks so much for the surfing.  Your solution might have to be the way we go.

This weekend though, I'm goinmg to remove one of the strips we have currently onboard and take it off in the van and go visiting. Aquafax, Wayford boatyard, H.W's J.W's etc and see what we come up with. We also have an engineering firm close to us here in Donny that may well be able to sort something.  Whatever we do, we will get it fettled one way or another!!
