Hot but work goes on!

More work on our teak floors yesterday in our run of nine over 30 degree days, it got to 38 degrees yesterday!  Teak has now been laid right through the saloon, so today is finishing the starboard steps and adding the silver ash curved pieces around the margin boards.  A frypan on a camping stove to create some steam, so we can bend the 5mm silver ash to get around those curves.  We are hoping that will be completed today, then we start the cockpit Monday.  Which means a big cleanup and some sanding of the surface in preparation for the glue.Also hoping to complete the icebox ‘coving’ and fit the headsail track on the foredeck, which means we can then finish fitting the two cabin’s ceiling panels and hatches.  That word ‘finish’ is a lovely word!!
