Oh dear

Another weekend at the boat, planning to do some major surgery to replace the aft beam under the mast step. My jack had arrived but as I was not sure it would be stable enough to lift the coach roof I borrowed an acro prop from the marina. I fitted that under the mast step and started lifting it but could not really move the coach roof even though I had slackened the shrouds. I did not want to put too much pressure though as I did not want to stress the hull over the keel. Anyway, I started cutting away the broken beam that came off surprisingly easily - it was all rotted. After removing a large section of it I discovered that the top of the bulkhead behind the beam has also rotted away. Oh dear - not another bulkhead job.. get feed
