Fender Fitting

Fitting the 1st Tipcat.

Today saw the fitting of the rear fenders. The 1st tipcat had to be hammered into shape with a sledge hammer, and readjusted each time until it fitted the shape of the boat.

Fitting the 2nd Tipcat.

The 2nd tipcat was similarly hammered into shape around the 1st one.

Readjusting before More Hammering.

After each hammering the chains were readjusted to take up the slack before hammering again. This was repeated until the final shape was achieved.

Fitting the button.

When the 2 tipcats were fitted the button was added behind them.

Fitting Completed.
