Replacing another Hatch Bezel

Our shipwright apprentices have moved outside of the shelter on Edna E. Lockwood's deck to replace another hatch bezel. See the before and after with work in progress here.
Joe's cutting around the metal driffs in order to remove the rest of the rotten bezel.

Pounding driffs into her new bezel.

Clamping the final piece in preparation of drilling and pounding the driffs to fasten it in place.
