Build day 63

 Wow, the engine is in the bay albeit just to one side of its intended position as Steve drills the locating holes to hold it in place.  
No, this is not the axiom propellor, Steve had had the actual one on the prop-shaft this morning to check how far up the shaft the locator fits, he's then put it away again and has fitted an old prop in that position while he connects the shaft to the engine.

The whole engine will probably be fitted by the end of the day.

In the meantime Stuart has been making arrangements for some heating inside the boat to assist the drying of the paint that will be applied next week after the primer has hardened and the boat masked up ready for the roof to get its first coat.
