Patricia Progress

We are progressing well now with The refurb' of Patricia. 
Today the professional pin removers set a new World Record of 5 removals, easily beating the previous 3 1/2. It does take a BIG hammer to do it though.

 Meanwhile, in the workshop, the seized- on bits of the rudder post were being removed by the engineering boys. It gets warmer when they get into action. 

Finally, on the stern deck a couple of deck plate removals exposed the leaking hydraulic leg rams. Lovely gunge down there! Somewhere down there is the pin which holds them in!
