Metal Fabrication

I don't have the facilities to fabricate metal at home and it would be a large outlay to buy the tools to undertake the work. I have requested quotes for 2x chainplates, 2x keels and 2x keel runners from FabTechAJ engineering and Stainless Marine Fabrications to give me an idea of cost.

Relocated Quest & Keel removal

Today I completed quite a lot of work on Quest. The boat has been moved to my parents house, taken off the trailer and the keels have been removed. Not bad when you consider there was only 8 hours of daylight!

Removing fittings and buying teak

Quest just about has all the fittings removed apart from her keels. I have also been sourcing parts and today I picked up some reclaimed Burmese teak from Lincolnshire Wood Supplies in Stamford, the owner was very helpful and machined the wood to my specification.
