The mushroom is fitted! This is the jammed air vent fort the wheel house (clearly no longer jammed and nicely restored. The wheel house has no opening windows so the restoration of this vent was vital. A simple screw thread allows it to be raised and lowered (shut). Good job Dave!
The first portholes are in and they look amazing. The first light these cabins have seen for probably 20-30 years. I cannot wait to see them for real.
The picture below shows the gantry that Dave built so he could access the ship side without scaffold and mud! Its going to be useful when it comes to painting the ship. At some point.
