Last small detail added in the old year.

I don't know what this mesh is for, I can only guess it is to avoid birds or other flying objects getting into the funnel.

I my wife's jewelry tool box I found this wire bending jig and lots of pegs. I wound some thread around the pegs and applied some CA and then several coats of pore filler.
Only when I was about to remove the mesh I realized that there were pegs of different diameters and the mesh is quite irregular. I am gonna leave it for now, maybe I make a new one someday later (probably never  ::)).

Have a good twentytwenty everyone.

Not much progress kno3, but I have not been completely idle. I was able to give the deck the long awaited for coat of satin clear and then mount the wheels again to the hull. Last Sunday she sailed again.

I also made the tow-rope winch and the funnel has received its guy wires.
