Cupboard, Bolts and Lighting, very very exciting.

Derwent6 is now the next boat out of the workshop at Fernwood and they have all hands to the pumps.

Rob and Chris have done a great job on the interior and Ken has carried on with the paintwork. We were also introduced to Simon the new guy on the team, who seems a really nice fella.

We had quite a nice shock when we walked into the saloon and saw the galley just how we imaged it.

As you can see the glass cupboards are fitted with their lights inside and underneath, and also the LED down lighters are now fitted in the roof.

The corner cupboard in the galley has now been changed from a hinged to a slide out version, due to the fact it wouldn't open fully and has allowed better access to the two drawers behind. This is held in place by the bolt to stop it sliding out on it's own.

The cream cupboard door fronts have also arrived and the cooker has now been ordered.

Also Sam has started on getting the engine wet fitted, which means fitting the engine cooling system to the central heating system and adding the fuel pipes, propeller etc.

Just as we imagined it

This is the Dayroom cupboard which we are thrilled to bits with, and it should hold all our bottles of booze!!!You can see from the original drawings that it is starting to look how we imagined it, and it is getting exciting now. We wanted a chunky style with a solid feel to it. We were going to have an arched top section, but on seeing it square, prefered it this way.If you look closely you can see that there is a small cupboard behind this for the storage of the fly and perspex screens.

In the bedroom the top has been done to the chest of drawers and the headboard infills have been done.

In the galley the two cupboards going on the bulkhead have been made up and as you can see from the drawings should look fab.

Oh! and the port side exterior has now been painted and Andy Russell the signwriter, has got the panels for the side doors for Roses and Castles.
