The Naiad Voyages

Mark Austen

2017.05.11 - Weighty Matters

For a change, this week today (Thursday) was shopping day so not a great deal of work was carried out on Naiad.


I did go to the chandlers in Ely to buy this. It is a 10kg mud weight and apparently much better than a traditional anchor in the muddy bottom of the river here.


I did make this up for the mast, it will hold the block through which the jib halyard will run. I'll put it on the next time the mast is down.


The cabin bottom boards are now in place...


...and so are the cockpit boards.
