Nothing is certain

24th August

With the storm over we hope to make some progress again. The weather looks uncertain and we now have a new enemy: the wind.

Our sheeting which, held most of the water out, is being pulled off the roof. Even battened down sections come away. We secure what we can and gamble on the rain staying away. But soon confidence fails and we start sheeting down again. This wastes hours.

Setting Sail

The next concern is the sarking board. What if the wind got under it. We add the roofing felt to the T&G at the bottom and brake out the nail gun to add the counter battens to secure the sark once and for all.

The evening brings calm and clear skies. We make real progress with the sarking stopping only when the moon light is not sufficient to see by.

A Full Moon
