When the weather peaks up, we will start work on the toe rail, with the help of the yard’s carpenter.
He has a lot of experience steam bending, so we are going to use that technique, and as few screws as possible.

I was originally going to go for Iroko on the inside (packing) and teak on the outside, but then I came across an ad for good quality iroko someone was selling a couple of hours away. It was so cheap I bought enough to do the entire toe rail with it, with more to spare. The carpenter said it should steam well enough for what we need to do, so fingers crossed!

I’ll let you know how it goes. I just wish this bloody rain would stop..
