Here she is almost ready for final fit out and engine installation. All of the painting is complete at this stage and now all the very careful installation of final trim and deck hardware is about to begin. Any mistakes at this stage can be very annoying and time consuming to fix.
There are deep lockers either side of the engine well that are ideal for fenders and boat hooks etc. They also house the batteries. All of the raw plywood edges are yet to be capped with oak trim. This is completely sealed in epoxy and varnish before being fitted.
Here the engine is in place and once installed the top of the well sides will be cut down to their finished height.
The rigging for the engine controls is being installed here the opening below the steering wheel is closed off in the finished boat.
Final touches going on here such as the seats, catches for the boarding ladder and deck cleats. She’s ready for sea trials next.
