More minor additions

It is too cold to do anything much at the moment. Thermometer in the boat is reading -5C. But I have done a couple of small, long outstanding jobs. A light, doubled line is fitted either side stretching along the bulwarks from the cabin to the fore deck. I can fit fenders to these if necessary. Before I had to tie them with long ropes from the  cabin top grab rails, which made going forward hazardous. I have set them up with a 2:1 purchase at one end, so they are really tight.

Inside I have fitted a double bungee along the side of the centreboard's case. This gives me a place to stow the washboards at last. Up until now I just jambed them into the quarter berth.

Too cold to carry on painting the boot top.
