    have now got gunnels out of the mould.

    will get them out the workshop tomorrow and turned over so i can trim them up then i can put hull mould back inside and sit the gunnels on top.

    thanks mate.

    can't wait to get this one built and on the water.

    that is a long way off yet as the fit out i reckon will cost around £20,000.

    that will include new engines , electronics , stainless work etc etc and so on.

    made a start on the wheelhouse today.

    i have taken off the side front windows as i have got a pair of alloy sliding windows to go in.

    got 2 gels on and the first layer of mat on so its safe now.

    i have also put a clear gel and layer of mat over the window openings as the boat will be going outside soon and i won't be fitting windows for a while.

    that will keep it dry inside and let in some light when im working in the wheelhouse.

    wheelhouse is now built up to thickness.

    hoping to get the roof done next week and then bond the 2 parts together.

    big day tomorrow as im aiming to pop the hull out of the mould as i can't bond the gunnels on whilst the hull is still in the mould.

    will post up lots of pics tomorrow night if all goes to plan.

    got a bit more done.

    forward bulkhead is finished apart from inside the compartments which i can't access yet as i don't know what size hatches im going to fit.

    gunnels all bonded on around the inside.

    made up 2 panels to fit under the steps and got them glassed in place.

    should have the roof made for the wheelhouse next week.
