A new creation
Hauling all this ballast around to the boat has prompted a new creation.
I have now started work on building myself a trolley, which I can use to wheel all this heavy stuff about the place. It's not just the ballast, there always seems to be stuff to cart between Lady Jane and the truck, or from Lady Jane to the skip.
The basic frame is now welded together and I have castor wheels on order, hopefully they will be delivered in the next few days.
Next I've got to weld the uprights on, these will hold the wooden sides in place.
I'll get the wood for the base and the edges once I have everything else welded together and the wheels bolted on. This is mainly so I can accurately measure up the sizes I'll need.
I don't know why I didn't think about this earlier. Needless to say, the new trolley will be blue.
