I am sure people are still think I'm slightly mad undertaking such a big project but with the bow now closed off and i actually need to go up a ladder and along the decks to get below is in my opinion an amazing leap forward. Work behind the rear shaft starts next week. I recon I'm about two months away from finishing all the deck and hull welding. Lovely..............

Cabin sides

Rear section of floor is welded in place. Big area can be removed for instant access.

Two scaffold poles welded in place for the self drainers. Very front section only spot welded in place so it can all be removed so big sheets of ply can be taken below.
