    [COLOR=var(--primary-text)]The yacht had been converted into a ketch from a Bermudan cutter in the 60s, the stainless steel honeymoon years, just before they all got into bed with fibreglass, which along with aluminium have to be some of the most ugly and dangerous postwar products. But I’m bound to be distressed by these things as my modus operandi is beauty and strength rather than speed and ugly design. All this junk hardware had to be replaced with new bronze hull, deck, interior and mast fittings. The electrolytic blight orchestra, the giveaway rivulet rain tracks and many other details I learnt from 29 years surveying wooden boats. Some of the photos on Lulworth and Patience were taken by Catherine Libeert a photographer from brussels, who regularly brought us Belgian chocolates. One day Poland beat Italy at football, when you’re in charge it pays to know the fixtures even if you don’t follow football, next day one of the poles dropped a steel frame on his foot with a vodka hangover, so for a month part of his work, hobbling on a broom was gluing up old hull planks, he was was to be kept working wearing leather sandals, I told him to get some steel toe capped working boots, I didn’t want to send him off the job because the team was welding tight, we could only use 10 old planks, if the yard on the Riviera had put a tarpaulin on the hull 20 years ago we could have used 150 old teak planks, what’s the difference in cost between that & a tilt, that yard reckoned they were the restoration yard in the Med, but tarpaulins obviously weren’t the only things they were pig ignorant about. I made a new 2 ton keel & gripe cut out of solid opepe, and a new keel, deadwoods, counter, stem, sternpost. The Italian companies could not deliver iroko keels, 30 ft. long x 3ft. wide x 10 or 20 inches thick, so I measured and ordered it from Barchards in Hull, 25 tons of it, to do the centreline & beams, etc. We made lodging, hanging knees in way of mast, double teak beamshelves, web plate knees, mast step. In one month I bored the sterntubes on Lulworth & Patience. I caulked all of Patience. I made a building board, joining 6 x 1 inch planks longer than the boat on the ground, painting it white, for marking out all the deckbeams, I fixed the board level above the boat, dropping the lines down to the boat, I could not hang it off the scaffolding roof which blew about in the wind. The battens hanging from the building board represent the main deck beams, not th

    [COLOR=var(--primary-text)]There is something quite unique in these writings. The cadence almost carries a Kerouacian beat within-an audible voice is present just between the syllables.
