In the water...

Kalessin is now in the water - she was launched on Thursday. Going down to see her is rather depressing for me though, because there's still work to be done to the cockpit locker and the aft cabin, and that means nothing can be put away or cleaned. On Friday, the main cabin looked like this (right). By Sunday she looked a bit better because I sorted out several dozen packs of bolts, screws, washers, grommets and split pins from various surfaces.

Still to do:
  • Fit holding tank (on its way from TekTanks in Hampshire)
  • Fit windlass (on its way from Germany, supposedly)
  • Fit water pipe connecting front water tank to new tap in the galley, which isn't fitted yet either - Sam says this is an easy job :-))
When all of these are complete I can clean up inside and start moving stuff on board.
