    Been working on the boat again. Final push now to get it launched in the Spring. Jacked it up little by little so its off the trailer so I can get a 1".x 3" hardwood strip fixed all along the bottom of the keel. The boat already came with holes drilled through the inner and outer skins and I have some 150x12mm bolts to go through so went to get my auger bits out for the job....... Got 10mm and 13mm and bigger but no bloody 12mm one. Normal drills are not quite long enough. Jeez. So I had to go to Toolstation in Kings Lynn to get one. Nice ride in the MG in the sun though.  Transport

    Went to the "Great Polish Map of Scotland" near Peebles today. This is a drone shot of it, it's hard to get a decent photo from ground level...

    At mother's bedside. Won't be long now. Couple of days very max I would think. They had to give her morphine earlier. If it was me, I would have thought long and hard about quadrupling the dose. As they saying goes, euthanasia doesn't result in more people dying, it results in less people suffering.

    There are other holes to be made........ Engine cooling intake, echo sounder and heads (toilet). Add the propshaft and bilge keels each side and that makes a total of,,,,,,,, 28 holes.   The exhaust, bilge pumps and sink outlets are just above the waterline but these have a gooseneck on the inside. Regular inspection and maintainence is the key. Old boats used to have copper to stop barnacles clinging on. Anti foul paint with a high copper content is what we use now.
