I've added another tonne of ballast to Lady Jane.
This is what a tonne's worth looks like, stacked on the quay.
I've now loaded nearly three tonnes of ballast, about the weight of two compact cars, into the depths of Lady Jane's bow, but have still only made about 5 or 6 inches difference in her trim.
It was on my mind to arrange the blocks in an artsy manner for a cool blog photo, but after carting the stuff about the yard I was in no mood to do so.
