Bulkhead project started
Work on sorting out the bulkhead between the fish hold and the engine room has now started.
I cleaned out and jet washed the port side fuel tank, ready for working on it safely. As I expected, it was a laborious, dirty job.
As always, things did not go quite according to plan. My old jetwash died the evening before, so I had to rush out and buy a new one to get the job done.
A section of rusty metal from where the fuel leak had occurred has now been cut out, ready to have new plate welded back in.
The picture shows sparks flying about inside the fuel tank as Robin cuts with the Oxy-Acetalene torch from the other side.
