We’ve been in the yard for six months now, and this week’s round-up, which covers all the work so far, coincides with Jamie’s return. The ceiling is going up and the mast is being dressed.
Weekly Video Round-Up
Six months in sixteen minutes. Well, more of a catch up from the last few weeks.
A Sneaky Peek
Here’s a sneaky peek at our interior. It’s coming along nicely and that companionway ladder looks fantastic but there’s still much to do.
Ceiling Goes Up
We’re getting rid of our horrible vinyl-covered ceiling and going for larger boards to be covered in laminate. You’ll also notice below that we’re creating channels between each section, which is where we’re putting the LED strip lights.
This is Yoong, who is our master stainless man. He’s a diamond and is doing all our stainless work. If I remember rightly he’s welding aluminum in this picture.
The dining table is almost ready and Yoong has fabricated a pedestal to Un’s design. The pedestal allows the table to move up and down.
We’re whittling down the number of people working on Esper now as the focus shifts from cosmetics to redressing the boat. We made good progress on the main mast but we’ve got a problem with a blocked conduit at the moment. The ceiling should be finished the carpenters can start looking at those many deck fittings.
