............... Nor a bottle trap .
Every ship I have been on has a series of small holes and a straight pipes leading down to the gunwale. My favourite job was to clear them with a piece of rod when a lake formed on the upper deck.

Absolutely ....... they obviously didn't do their homework.

Hi guys ...... have I missed something? They said they made the new roof beams in their shore based workshop . I cant see anywhere in their recent YT vids how they fastened them to the " cabin" sides . Did they bolt them ? Screw them or what ? Maybe they have just rested the roof in place .......... hope not!

I'm still not convinced that those drains on the roof are a good idea. They will soon block and be unable to shut tightly. I think the guys are doing a great job with this old ship
