Day 3 of Still Rockin'

62’ x 11.5 of steel for the base plate plus the cabin sides and the forklift truck is used as a weight to keep the steels still whilst they’re welded
 Steve Lambon is doing what he enjoys so much ….
 … welding ... 
… the brace bars to the base plates.
Looking forward to Tuesday - our next visit!

Hi Carol, Just having a blog catch up and noticed you are in Droitwich Spa Marina - we are also there! In fact we were visiting yesterday to do some pre winter jobs and I commented to Chris that I thought I had spotted your boat and it appears I was correct!! I think we are just a bit further along (nb Tentatrice at S29). We will be over again from time to time, so if you fancy meeting up do please drop me an email. We were watching nb Tentatrice grow from flat steel from Jan this year, so I will watch the build of your new pride and joy with great interest. Jennie and Chris.

You two now have the winter to practice your moves - that much space requires a VERY flamboyant dance routine.
Wow!

Are you going to have the underside of the base welded? It is a source of corrosion, as well as the joints between the uxter plate and swim, and the undersides of the rubbing strakes. I'm just had mine done before epoxy coating and that is after having the millscale etched off. Just a thought, but it will depend on how long you intend to keep the boat. Good luck with Stillrockin'.

Hi Jennie, we’d love to catch up with you both, just give us a knock next time you’re at the marina!

Hi both, don’t know whether I’m terrified or over excited about those dance routines! Still Rockin’ won't be ready ‘till end March(ish) it seems a long way away just now! Happy cruising.

Hi Ray, We don’t know if that’s a regular thing that they do but we’re going to see Lambon Boats this morning and will find out - thanks for the heads up.
