The sim was run up after a break of two weeks and pleased to say it remains serviceable.
The LCP cabin restoration continues! Quite a gang of us today as besides Neil and myself (Pete H) there was Richard V plus Dave S and his brother-in-law John. Neil and Richard had an inspiring day scraping paint of the end wall of the LCP cabin; a definite ‘mind in neutral’ job. Dave and John spent a fair bit of time battling to remove the awning spreaders from the LCP roof. After doing battle with rusted bolts and their castellated nuts retained with rusted split pins it was decided that the complete bracket assembly for each spreader would be unbolted from the cabin roof to make life easier for all. The spreaders can then be restored at a later date while the main effort remains on the main cabin. I spent time on corrosion treatment of screw heads and priming the cable duct housings of the left hand wall of the cabin. The housings are fibreglass so a special ‘plastic’ primer is being used – only available in black!
