We got the new window glass installed, and it’s nice and bright in the shed again!!
Inspired by the new light, we also made some changes inside. The shed has been listing towards the back a bit lately, so we moved some weight to the front, which, along with the window bars has helped quite a bit. There had been some rain coming in at the top of and between the doors, so we blocked some of that with strips of wood – that made a huge difference in blocking the wind as well – it got nice and cozy! And we turned the Fancy Pram on its side, allowing more light to spread in the shed, provides some storage for rudders and centerboards in the boat, and we built a bit of a bench/shelf above the boat. In the space where the boat used to stand, we put up some clamp racks for much easier access.
Meanwhile, we also got some work done on the Button Swan (yes, it was a nicely productive day!). We got the in-wales fitted (we were happier than it appears), more work done on the rudder, and got the mast step mostly fitted.
All in all, another great day at our little floating shed at Vancouver Maritime Museum’s Heritage Harbour!
