November and December has seen all the steel removed. The beams are in really good condition although a few beams around the rear locker and hatches are a bit rusty. The whole of the interior is now out so pressing on with the removal of the rusty steel
near the keel and bow section. Estimated that 25% of the steel below the waterline will be replaced as well as 100% of the steel deck. Only about 6 ft of internal beams will need to be replaced which is quite good compared to the other parts
of the boat.
Still loads of dust, dirt and sharp metal edges everywhere, the dismantling process will continue to at least the end of January. Then I go forward (I hope).
