Just looked and havn't posted for so long, then ran through what we had been up to. First we have been busy on constructing our mooring which has taken up quite a few weekends but one more good go should do it, flicking through some photo's reminded us of how much we have achieved, from clearing the land, to installing our two mooring towers.
As for the boat that is really starting to come on now the galley is well under way, the bedroom is also coming progressing well and the office area and the hotpod plinth are better than we can ever of imagined. We just love the polished stainless surround behind the Hotpod. We have had to revamp our plans slighty to aid the fitment and service access to the generator, this certainly is a large lump to accomodate, but are now happy with the decisions we have jointly made with our builder.
The roof and sides now have colour which we love. Fridge, freezers hob & washer dryer have all been chosen so hopefully will be fitted this week. The laminates for the bathroom have now been finalised so hopefully we will see some progress in this area soon. The sofa base is the next main construction/design item on our list.
Just writing this makes us realise how far we have come in the last couple of months.
As for launch date we reckon we could just make pre- xmas which would be brilliant, the downside of this is that we won't be able to launch at Debdale as planned, this is due to stoppages on the Grand Union and the River Nene so we will launch at March on the middle levels. This is a real shame as we was quite looking forward to this being our maiden cruise, but hey!!! plently of time for that. Hopefully back to builders this week so may have some updated photo's to upload and so will try not to leave it too long next time.
