Painting starts, end in sight.

With most of the major elements of the boat built it is now time to move on to the internal fit out of the cockpit. Unfortunately due to Covid restrictions at the time of building, the client wasn’t able to attend the workshop to have a fitting to make sure it was totally comfortable. Luckily I had anticipated this and we were able to get everything perfect after a few months of use.

Above you can see the consoles for the helm and co-pilot and below the seats for the cockpit. I made these in the form of a plywood box for light weight and high strength. There’s still quite a bit of work to be done, fitting the engine, deck hardware etc. etc. and of course many many hours of sanding and coats of paint and varnish.

If you would like to discuss having your own boat built, restored or repaired don’t hesitate to contact me, either through the contact page, by email or by phone +353 86 1586937.
