KINGSWEAR CASTLE WINTER REFIT 2003/2004

 

The new fan venting all in place and being sanded by Chris Smith

 

 The new starboard paddle box coming on with work progressing.

 

 The old fan venting has been re-attached to act as a template. Each piece is then removed in turn and the new venting cut to be an exact copy. In this picture two new pieces are in place. Chris Smith is removing another one and his son Daniel is sanding down the new wood cladding which has been laid over the aft part of the cover..

 

 The cover has been welded into place and the steel and wood for the base for the decorative centre piece are now in place.

 

 The new steel paddle box cover is being wedged into place by Chris Smith
