Cutting lead again
Yesterday we cut nearly 1800 lbs of lead and loaded it into the back of my truck.
Actually my good friend Martin Dudley who has a tree trimming business here cut the lead this time with one of his chainsaws.
He also has purchased and refurbished a Carriacou Sloop down in the Grenadines. His will be here in time for the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta this year.
Anyway, if you follow this blog regularly then you will have seen this video of our second boat being built which was shot back in the summer.
It's still slowly being built and we are getting the lead ballast ready for her at the moment. We will have to sail the lead down to Carriacou soon. Off to cut and collect some more lead now from the 23 ton keel we have been salvaging.
