We went up to Fernwood craft this week to discuss the planning for Derwent6, and also find out how they are getting on with the work in progress.
They certainly know how to produce a Wow factor boat, with the four they have in the workshop, at the moment.
Julia sat us down and we went through the fundamentals of the boat, talking about water and waste tanks (with a coffee of course). We then talked about colours and fabrics for the bathroom and dining room, but Julia still hadn't got the feeling we had with the colours.
We then went and looked at the new concept boat (Whitefields) and it is coming along nicely.
You can check this out on Fernwood's website www.fernwoodcraft.co.uk . It's a nice boat, but a bit complicated (to many things to go wrong), but it just shows what Fernwood can do.
We then showed Julia the samples for the saloon and dining room, and suddenly, Julia could see where we were coming from, with all the warm colours blending through Derwent6.
We are hoping that Derwent6 will enter their workshop in about 3 weeks....Jim has about a weeks work, so he will hold onto the hull, until Fernwood need it. We will go back up to Jim just before the hull is primed for transportation, and we will be there with the camera.
