Fairing continues …

By | February 14, 2012

Still working on the fairing of the outside of our boat, inside will come next.  While Mick, our fairer, continues to bog, sand & polish, Neville has been working on the conversion of the cockpit locker to an icebox.  Mick will add the finishing fibreglass, then Neville will add some insulation.  This is a ‘work in progress’.

Our ‘plan’ at the moment is to ‘finish’ the port hull.  With so many jobs surrounding us, narrowing it down to one area seems to help in terms of ‘what to do next’.  Neville loves the plumbing.  Pumps & pipes are all being added along the way and the main bathroom is moving along with work being done on our open shelves.  We’ve designed a cover piece for these and the benchtop is about to be made.  With our basins already purchased, we seem to be struggling with finding the right taps, especially a tap/shower for the second bathroom which has to clear the semi-recessed basin.  What would we do without the internet?!

We are eagerly awaiting our internal aluminum doorway frames and our new windows being put in once the window cut-outs are faired … more fairing!

Lots to do, but things are moving … and we are not sick of it yet!!
