The Starling Project - Part 25
To get a perfect fit in the centre I had to hold very firmly and maintain a slight twist for a long time while nailing (The dance of bronze nails on a gluey hammer head tested my sense of boat building Zen to the limit). I think it was this that severely strained some chest muscles that had me headed to the hospital the next day. (See previous post).
BUT!!! Despite all that marlarky I am now very happy indeed with the new splashboards. I have made them a little bit larger and chunkier than the originals and I think they look great. I'll sand the glue marks off the deck, clean up the splashboards, fit a central supporting block and on we will go. We are back on the wagon again LOL.
