On a dull, cloudy, rainy day, the latest piece of the Mayflower was added to the existing build. As the rain came down, the shipwrights lifted the inner sternpost into place. Once in place, a piece of batten was fixed in front of the inner sternpost to stop it slipping and it was also strapped into place. There’s not much more I can say really, as the pictures tell the story.
