steel frame on Lundy.
The only snag with that plan was that the frame sides had been taken from
the ship to the lambing shed.
Some of them had been severely crapped upon (technical term) by some of the

was somewhat reluctant to stick to some small areas. I think we got the
second coat to seal ok.
Sheep shyt appeared more dangerous that the acid or epoxy!
