Lining going up...slowly

The lining is going up very slowly as the first lot of grip adhesive for the battens did neither grip nor did it adhere wood to metal. In fact it remained in the same state that it was when squeezed from the tube for 48 hours. I had to re-do all the battens. It seems o.k. now. Never buy anything that says 'Trade' on it. An excuse for inferior quality if you ask me. I'm not surprised that the building trade gets a bad name it this is kind of rubbish they use.

The one side has been nearly completed below the gunwales and has been oiled and varnished to protect it from my clumsy footwork. Port side tomorrow. Now I've got the hang of it it'll be a dawdle from now on. Maybe.
