Progress at Anderston Quay
Report by Martin Longhurst 19 February 2004
The paddler laid up at her winter berth at Anderston Quay
Two small portacabins are stationed on the Quay for varnishing work
The duck boards from the landing platforms are being treated with teak oil while the dodgers from the Bridge wings gleam with fresh varnish
In the other cabin, Derek Brown had been hard at work on deck seats
A gaggle of benches wait on the port after deck
Work in progress on the landing platform steps
Meanwhile in the Engine Room, the condenser was being stripped for attention ...
... the air pump opened for survey ...
... and the low pressure piston rings replaced following problems last season.
