Latest Visit

Not a lot different to take photos of on our latest visit to Beacon - the bedroom cupboards are back in after being oiled, the shower room cupboard is still out, as are the galley cupboards, as you can see through the stern doors in the photo below. The granite worktops have been ordered and should arrive and be fitted next week, so it's all hands to the pumps to get the galley cupboards oiled and re-fitted in time for Mr Granite (Ramon Fernandez from Quorn Stone) to do his stuff.
The bedroom flooring is down, as is most of the shower room floor, and a bit in the galley
The water system and the central heating system are now filled and checked for leaks - none found, thank goodness! Some of the lights are also connected up and working, and very pretty they look too!

The painting is still going well going well - all taped up with green masking tape for the trim, which is in the process of going on

Caution! - Man at Work!

Look how shiny our paintwork is - like a black mirror. Oh dear, we'll belong to the shiny boat brigade! Never mind, I'll soon change all that - my steering sometimes leaves a lot to be desired!

Sheila Smith at S.A.B Signs is due to start on the signwriting next Wednesday - unfortunately it is doubtful that we will be able to go up and watch which is a pity. However, daughter Emma and son-in-law Ben, and grand-daughters Florence and Milly are coming on Thursday for the weekend, and to be given the grand tour, so hopefully we will go up on Friday, and Sheila should still be there beavering away.

Oh, nearly forgot - the engine is just about all connected up, just the exhaust to finish.
So there has been a lot going on , just not much to see! Hopefully, when we go up next week there will be much more to photograph.

It is hard to beleive that it will all be ready and on the water in four to six weeks time - there still seems such a lot to do - Neil, Ali and Andy are working flat out to make sure it is ready. They are all heros!
