Another full on session in the workshop Yesterday riveting away. I've been trying various bottles of stuff all day long in an attempt to get this dam choccy sauce of my hands,forearms,elbows after Saturdays session! I even managed to get some on my temple and ear of all places. Bloody good job I didn't need a number one or two during the day :lol:

Been getting some funny looks in the shop when handing the customers their change today :shock:

Baby wipes are awesome for getting the choccy out.... And that is not a euphemism ! Although it's good at that too

POTD 10th February 2014 "Thousands"

Post by rob565uk » Mon Feb 10, 2014 11:43 am

I looked at today's striking POTD, showing Righty sponson with planing wedge attached and the word "Thousands" sprang to mind:

The planing wedge, supplied and machined by our Sponsors MKW Engineering at a cost of thousands...

The Sponson core, painstakingly built by Team members and representing over a thousand hours of planning, technical meetings, procurement of materials, creation of special tooling and of course, voluntary labour...

The good part is that the finished boat will most certainly be appreciated and admired by... thousands :)

I'd say we're at about 1500 for those two skins.

My apologies for the very late appearance of today's POTD- my internet was down for much of today- bad weather maybe? (And as it was, we also got stuck in a shopping centre with no power this afternoon!) Anyway, here it is in full on the forum as well -

The skin is on and pinned down enough to give us a start and Novie is wielding the Avdel gun and firing in the first few ‘easy’ blind rivets; these go wherever there is an inaccessible void and they get a tremendous hold on things. After this, we’ll settle down into riveting teams for the day and do the other few hundred rivets the harder way…
