Well we're dancing round the may pole already, but we Maybe getting a call soon, saying the steel has been ordered by Jim Sparks' our hull builder, so we have been looking at all the changes that we want Jim to make.
These are things like the size of portholes, size of cratch lockers, bow deck drainage, bow design, position of mushroom vents and houdini hatches. Also how the fenders are fixed and their location, side door positions, roof rail cutouts and stern deck and roof hatches.
Difficult to get your breath back after all that lot!!!!
We have drafted up a little booklet for Jim to use, so he knows exactly how we want Derwent6 to look.
For example! Jim has these rails fitted to the bow sides which we don't want, so I have drawn it how we want it.
We also want roof fenders with cutouts in the roof rails, so the fenders can be put up when travelling.
and a square roof hatch fitted to the side doors.
We are now working on a scrapbook for the interior.
More soon !!!!
