As the title says,here is a job that I wouldn’t want.We went down to Trent Lock on Friday to see how Chyandour is coming along and,as you can see from the photo’s below,she is coming along nicely.John and Mick have been busy fitting the battens and then taping them ready for the Sprayfoam.That brings us to the reason for the title.The guy doing the spraying has done a lovely job but the conditions he has to work in are something else.He has to wear a full face mask with an air supply and after a while he starts to suffer from “snow blindness” as a result of looking at the white Sprayfoam on the sides and the roof.Fortunately,Friday was a cool,wet,miserable day,so he didn’t have to work in an the “oven” that un unlined steel tube could become on a nice day.He applied the foam to Johns requirements and then,with his dad,he trimmed the excess,removed the tape and cleaned up.Chyandour is now ready for the next step.I have to say that,so far,I am more than impressed.
The two photo’s above are of the Sprayfoamer (do you think that’s a job title? I don’t know his name and I had to call him something) hard at work and then in discussion with John.
Above are of Chyandour prepped ready for the Sprayfoam on the left and after she had been Sprayfoamed and cleaned up on the right.
After we had had a good look over Chyandour being insulated we were introduced to the couple who have “Cats Whiskers”,the last boat to be fitted out by John and Mick.It was a pleasure to meet Pat and Rodger and to see how they are getting on in their new “home” a semi trad with reverse layout.Sadly the weather had restricted them a bit but they were looking forward to it improving so they could get off on their travels.Hope they have now got away and are cruising up the T&M.
We also had a good chat to John and Mick about various bits and pieces,nothing of any concern,I should add,other than,that is,the correct spelling of Chyandour.
Thats all for now,I’m afraid,the next update will be after we get some new photo’s from the lads at Kingfisher.
Fingers crossed that the photo’s I’ve posted stay in the position I’ve put them.
