Scupper replacement

Scupper replacementThe scuppers on Lady Jane's starboard side have been in poor shape since before I bought her.

It's time do something about it, before they fall off on their own accord.

The picture shows one of the scuppers after it's been cut off and turned around, to reveal how bad things really are. The tape marks you can see, if you look closely, cover holes rusted through the plate there.

It should not be too hard to fabricate new ones, but for some reason it's been a big mental challenge for me to actually make that initial cut.

Once the job is complete, it should mean the end of those ugly rust streaks down the paintwork as well.
