Metal Magician's - 25th March

The cold weather continues here at the Marina, with a biting easterly.
Some snow remains, though we didn't have the heavy falls experienced over the hills and elsewhere.
When will it warm up?

I walked round to see what the boat engineers were doing to a hire boat that they had pulled out.
Oh dear! A very bent rudder!

Apparently it had got wedged under the counter when in hard reverse?!


The rudder stock flange is unbolted
The boat lifted up to release the rudder
How to flatten the rudder?
Some brilliant lateral thinking by the engineer – use the weight of the boat and trailer.
Final touches

Back into the water – and the holiday cruise can continue!
