Today!
This week we strip down our new to us drone after we flew it twice and crashed it once! Plus we got one of the stainless corners welded onto the roof and made a start on a ridiculously complex hinge for Jess's Editing Mac to mount against a wall and push out of the way when not in use. A critical thing on a boat where space is a luxury.

This week was a bit of everything. as soon as we started one job something changed and we were onto something else. We tackled the stainless corners for the wheelhouse, Trimmed the seadoor a bit more and made it fit better, designed a new table for the lounge and did some CAD design work for a new hinge for the editing Mac to swing it down from the wall when in use.

This week we were on the home stretch with the sea door, the dogs were completed, the skin fitted to the pre-bent frame and the stainless sealing surface welded into the cabin. For the first time ever Brupeg has a functioning door on this side!

This we baby is awesome! with a spool gun, we tackle the pivots on our alloy sea door and made a start on our stainless dogs that will latch the door tight against the rubber sealing face.

This week we bend and twist the alloy door frame that we made last week, to match the shape of the cabin side. We also farewell Nugget our trusty MIG welder after 4yrs of dedicated service, through thick and thin Nugget was right there beside us.

This week we make a start on our watertight side doors for the rear cabin. These will be bolted to the custom Pentagraph Hinges from Episode 29 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVdIb5XgG14). The door needs to be light so Jess can open and close it with ease and also so it doesn't have much momentum if opened in a seaway and turn into a guillotine. Jess makes a concerted effort to get the two pack paint off our Alloy Jet Dinghy, and Dame has a good think and misdiagnoses a problem with our welder (nugget).

This week was all about getting our anchor winch up and running. After rebuilding the winch in episode 51 we and bracing it to the deck so it can handle a huge load in episode 73, it was time to get the hydraulic pipework up to the bow and able to spin the winch. This winch is capable of lifting 2 to so it was important it was done right. We got our mate Sam in to help us build the system and test the winch. Music this week to follow
