La Semaine and Bertha I

With La Semaine Du Golfe Bertha will need some taking care of. Sanding and painting the  hul is a good start.

The boat will be left afloat on a mooring during La Semaine and that’s an issue. She will fill up.

Traced the leak ar the rear; The solid oak panel once again not bonding with the ply. The best answer would be be to replace the oak with a ply panel but I like it as it is so I’ll just waterproof it. There is another leak to look for at starboard I haven’t been able to find up to now.

With my compagnon Frans joining me during the raid it’s fair to think the boat will be underpowered. So I have  a jib sail made. It will be ready next weekend, can’t wait.

Ah look it’s there!

Some damage needed to get repared:

And some more pictures from a week later:
