By midday the sky was leaden and the rain had settled in for the day. We’ve almost run out of small jobs to do so I snuck in a couple of Continue reading

Busy day at Boat Works

It’s been a busy day at Boat Works! Sadly the beautiful rainbows we were treated to all morning slowed down the sanding works.
