Well another week goes by, and so another visit to see the progress on the build. Lots of work has been done, with more head/side linings installed and with the LED light units going in at the same time. Here’s the fore-cabin area above the desk area showing a couple of the Quick Lighting units, and the head linings in place. In the very top left you can just see one of the overhead deck hatches, which have now got their surrounds in place, and integral fly screens and blinds installed.

Underneath this area the first elements of the stainless steel trim were being installed in the fiddle rails, Here are some installed above the desk cupboards, with a couple of sections waiting to be installed at the base of the adjacent cupboards. At the lower left a couple of power sockets are being installed.

On deck stanchion bases, rubbing strakes and the aft pulpit have been installed, and in this photo the Raymarine I70s instruments were being installed in the hatch garage pod, other elements such as the Raynet Switch, and AIS are already installed under the nav desk.

At the stern the swim platform had been craned into position and the stainless hinges were being positioned. The blue object on the right is a stainless chain plate for the split back stay.

Over in the joinery area the floor coverings are now almost complete, ready for the edges to be sealed prior to installation

And on a different bench more stainless trim was being fitted, here the large fiddle that goes on the aft cabin berth is being addressed.

So she is progressing very well, and I am very pleased with how she is coming together, can’t wait to see her with all of the protective coverings removed!
