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.

Stainless bolt sheared off so had to hacksaw the bolt either side of the plate. Used a slate ripper extensively to slide up the sides and knock out debris and rust. The hole for the pin was extremely worn.
