Summer Haul Out

We hauled Noel out and repainted the bottom, new zincs and cleaned the props.  While she was up we did a trial run of refastening a frame with bronze screws and came up with the technique required to do it.  She has a layer of 1/2 inch plywood over her planks, so the goal was to sink the head of the screw below the plywood layer, which required a countersink without a shoulder.  We grind a drag link socket to make a bit to fully fill the slots in the screws.
