No nothing serious, just needed a slap of paint and one or two minor repairs. The good news is, it went back on the water yesterday (Friday).

Now all I have to worry about is leaks, as all wooden boats leak for a while whilst the wood swells back up. Hope the bilge pumps work!! I'll be back down to check everything again today.

Thankfully it seems within 24 hours the wood has swollen and re-sealed itself. All the leaks I had, seemed to have subsided, and just a few minor seepage's remain.

Although some clown did manage to get some floating rope wrapped around the prop that will need removing at low tide, but that'll need to wait until next week. clown

At least I can sleep tonight not worrying about it sinking Sleep
