A few weeps

Well one thing that I need to attend to before launch is the weeps under the engine bay in the deadwood. They make around a gallon a week, but they really annoy me. Next weekend I will get back to wood on either side and pour ethanol in the bilges to understand exatley where the leaks come from. Then after the ethanol dries I can start pumping in white lead paste into the affected areas. After that I can get on with anit-fouling her and raising the boot-top by a couple of inches.

Ps. Note the reclaimed mahogany stair treads that I will use to make a saloon table - thank you Ben for that- Much appreciated!
