She has been on Coniston for many years and has been upside down in recent times. She is missing the rudder, has had a chainplate ripped out and the keel is very rusty and jammed. All in all, plenty to keep me busy for a good few months.
First job is going to be getting the keel sorted. Managed to release it and now have to try to remove the pivot bolt.

Currently feel like I’m sitting on a mooring as the boat is moving so much in the wind. Reality is I’m on a trailer in the boat yard but 50knot storm outside is shaking it good style😄
Just finished removing the inner shelves and storage bags. Pig of a job as they are all riveted in. The rivets spin in their holes when the drill gets going. Advice for doing the job is to get a cobalt drill bit and drill very slowly. Be prepared to stop quickly when the river head comes off.
