With the non-skid down the entire deck is now covered in 70s-pattered vinyl for protection. The remaining areas of Awlcraft have been buffed and polished, which means the painters have almost finished.
Meanwhile, down below, three carpenters and two varnishers are cracking on with the cupboards, trim, floorboards and finally, the saloon table, which has a rather cool design feature. The swimming platform has to be sent to Hat Yai in order for it to be bent.
Weekly Video Round-Up
The painters have pretty much finished and cover the decks in vinyl, whilst the carpenters and varnishers get cosy down below. Pong, meanwhile, begins some magic on the saloon table.
Saloon Table – A Unique Design
Something we haven’t covered either in the video or on the blog, is our new saloon table. We’ve been discussing and debating all sorts of options. The old one was big, cumbersome and used up a lot of space, and since we now have our own areas to work on our computers (i.e. the chart table for me and Liz’s Boffice for Liz), we considered removing the table altogether. Then we considered having just a small coffee table. In the end we combined the two ideas and so Pong has start to work on Un’s design, based on our specification, with a larger top table and a smaller coffee table underneath. It’ll make sense once you see it in action in a future video clip.
Those Deck Boxes
Just thought you might want a quick peek at those deck boxes, now sprayed and with their lids fitted.
We explained how the workers have been cracking along in the interior, so here’s a quick photo-catch up of their work.
Really looking forward to seeing that saloon table take shape!
