Good morning
We'll on the 22nd of April Tracey Lea was transported home via road the hole exercise went off without any drama at all, the transport company was fantastic very professional and caring and wouldn't move until she was happy with everything couldn't recommend them high enough was totally happy. Tracey Lea is now in a industrial yard close to home less then 5 minutes away blocked up and content. Put salt water over the keel to keep it wet she is still dripping but slowing every day. The only place we could get to or hadn't got to was the stem post to see what condition it was in has now been reached to find what we thought fresh water damage to both the stem post and the rebate on the bow timber both will be replaced. It came out super easy have removed all nails from the planks and sanded back to clean up ends haven't decided yet weather to plug and glue all nail holes and redrill new holes or to use existing holes more thought required on this when closer to reinstating stem post. Transom is still out have to go out into the bush and find some grown knees for the transom frame and the deck stringer the stringer is showing signs of decay on the ends so will scarf new timber for solid fixture for knees. Pictures to follow of the move.
