Based on the comments I've had, I know more than one reader will be pleased that I've finally got around to doing this.
The rail work is in preparation for finishing rust busting and painting the front deck itself.
Straightening those rails is not as easy as you may think.
The bent rails need to be cut off and straightened, after heating the bent bit to cherry red. They then need to be cut back to length, as they stretch with bending.
After the lengths have cooled, the ends must then be ground, so they can be welded back in properly.
The picture shows the gaps in the rails where they've been cut out for straightening.
Sadly, the really bent top rail at the bow will need to wait a while, as it's going to need a pipe bender and some serious effort to sort out.
