Inch by Inch, Row by row, launch time gets closer.

I know it looks like I’m still a long way off form launching but I’m a lot closer than when I was doing this.


The cabin is now finished; so all I have to do is fit the windows and the toilet. As you can see I’ve started priming the decks. Motor well, seats and console are made and being painted. I picked up the motor at the weekend from Marine Motors in Cork and I have all the chandlery; which I was able to get in C H Marine in Skibbereen. (Here’s a tip you can get a 5% discount if you order online and select to pick it up at one of their shops. Discounts are always good.) I was able to get all of the two part epoxy and polyurethane paint for the boat in Skibbereen also, from West Cork Paint Supplies (028 23162). If you’re going to try being eco friendly it should start close to home.

Anyway I have a mountain of things to do before I’m finished; but I can see that each day I’m getting closer.
