Platform out

PlatformFollowing the colision with the Humber Star, I am now left to deal with the damage.

Here Fred and I hoist the platform, Willcarry 1, back out of the water.

That platform would make an ideal swim deck I was thinking.

In my mind's eye, I had the idea that I could simply lift this onto Lady Jane's deck and take it with us on our travels.

The reality is, that thing is much harder to lift out than I'd thought it would be, and covered in all sorts of marine growth underneath makes it smell somewhat when out of the water.

Anyway, the task in hand is to repair this as soon as possible, so I can get it back in the water to work on the outside of Lady Jane's hull in the warmer weather.
