release this wing nut, and arch can drop, and on this boat SO CAN THE SCREENS which will get her air draught down very well

Makes her air draught low enough to get to some of the prettier bits of smaller French canals I am told.
APRIL 16th 2019 ONWARDS,
Ashore for works, she was lifted a few weeks back, and has had a month approx drying out, before
she has had usual under water servcie works, she will be back afloat in a week or so, and we will get some shots of her
once works are Finished.
hull sides all polished,
nice deep /medium dead rise angle
new anodes on bow prop,
stern gear nice and yellow, but still to be de scaled, note new anodes going on,
clever retro fit to take exhaust down under water to acheive same effect as later boats with exhausts
turned through bends inside hull and then down out of External pods nearer mid ships,
by doing so OUTSIDE the transom it leaves far more space inside the aft end..and means that there ar far fewer
Hose/Elbow Clamp joints to potentially leak inside the boat, simple but effective.
and the "fishtail" exit point mimics the usual external pods as well.
note trim tabs about to be cleaned and have new anodes fitted.
JUST BEFORE LAUNCH AT EASTER 2019, below;
decent Drop down Ladder
nice polish up to Stern gear, that all looks good
