Right, time for a long overdue update!.
Just a quick one for now showing some of the progress last year on the fashion pieces and the aluminium hatch project.

The fashion pieces have been bolted in and I've made up the crossbeam which goes between them to stiffen the transom although this hasn't been bolted in as yet...

Fashion pieces installed and Cross beam dry fitted:

I modified some handrails which came off the spares boat and fitted them to the wheelhouse (I think these probably started life as a pair of vertical double door handles on a cinema or similar)

Originally the boat would have had a set of straight brass handrails fitted hear rather than the L shape of these but as I had them it seemed silly not to reuse them

Ill try to get some more photo updates done over the next week or so as time permits!



Excellent work Dave. so much to be admired by us mortals ;)


as an aside., I don't suppose you have a surplus-to-requirement pair of those lifeboat fairleads do you ..perhaps from your 'spare' boat.. ?   If so I might be very interested (dependent on their size and price) for my own craft.  I'd sleep a little more peacefully on a gusty night if I knew the anchor line' bridle was unable to jump out of the fairleads.  Likewise., if I ever needed to be towed by the lifeboat good folk.  




 ...its a bloody motor car  ..not a Fabergé egg. !
