In order to make Rebus Stone a practical living space we removed the engine, pumping gear and most of the raised sections of the roof before towing her to our mooring on the Adur estuary. We then did a huge amount of metal work, removing bulkheads and hundreds of gussets, and fitting portholes and skylights to open her up to natural light. being steel, she required a load of insulation and three wood fired heating systems. The final fit out is the satisfying bit, but as these photos illustrate, it makes up a small proportion of the work! We  We now live in the stern half and rent out the two other units to our friends. Our workshop is also moored alongside.
