More Splashes of Colour
The two carpenters had some fun with the coloured laminate this week.
If you remember we’re putting it up in the heads, green on the back wall and purple on the forward one.
For some reason, however, Ton decided to put some more orange laminate across the top of the galley. No one told him to do this but it looks good anyway so we’ve decided to keep it.
Ton’s work in the cabin is complete. Here you can see a detail of the curved wall with vertical-running veneer, a section underneath with horizontal veneer and the back wall, also with horizontal veneer.
Tui was tasked with creating curved corners above the engine. This is in keeping with the original design and of course means that accidents are minimised in rough weather, should you catch yourself on the corner.
Companionway Ladder Completed
Pong has now completed the new companionway ladder and it looks good!
Almost Ready For Painting
The painters are twiddling their thumbs. This week they finished off preparing the top sides and have placed a network of string all around the boat, ready for the clingfilm ‘shed’.
Mounting The Pacific Plus Windpilot
Finally, we mounted the Pacific Plus Windpilot back onto the transom so the stainless guys can start measuring up the swimming platform.
Top coat on the top sides!
