Boat work continues

Among the many task on the to-do list is securing the hatches for ocean-going conditions. These covers are from the 4 forward compartments.
Who's that so effectively using the drill?
Dick pulled the core out of an old braided line, then inserted shorts lengths of dyneema (the world's strongest fiber, so says the manufacturer) but is subject to degradation by the sun.

The loops were potted into epoxy-filled holes.
More epoxy was filled with a syringe until the hole was full.  When finished every hatch cover will be lashed down.
