Platform comes together

Firstly, apologies to readers for the lack of posts. This is partly because your writer has been splinning too many plates - and partly going through a phase of laborious but not very interesting work on RTW335. Anyway, this week some of those efforts have resulted in something worth photographing!

After rebuilding all the platform steelwork - that was heavily corroded - and the platform riser, a newly fabricated platform bulkhead has been fitted (no small job in itself) and work is now progressing on reboarding the platform. This view captures coachbuilder Jim Howard finishing off the perimeter timberwork around the platform framing.
