Ballast

A couple of tons of lead being melted down for ingots. We bought an old keel from a local yard as well as some internal ballast from an old work boat. The joy of internal ballast is that you can move it fore and aft to get the right trim.

BASH PLATE

 This is the 10mm steel plate that the hull sits on when we dry out. It gets really quite wide as it goes aft so that legs are not required.

ASH

 This is some Ash I had to cut out about to be cut into two inch planks. Its a wonderful 150 year old saw and we're using some of the wood to make the tiller arm.
