As some of you know I have been busy again this winter on Nipper. She came out of the water in November last year and went into Martham’s shed where this years project was strip and revarnish the hull to match the top I did last year.
Due to the Covid lockdown I was unable to get on with finishing her until two weeks ago. 12 tins of varnish later and today was launch day. As you will expect 7 months out of the water she has dried out quite a bit so no surprise we took a bit of water.
With an unexpected low water this morning I managed to get back under Potter with 6ft 3inches clearance. Now back on her mooring she is pumping every 45 mins I will check on her again tomorrow after she has had a chance to settle.
