Portholes and fabric

The new portholes done by Procast are just fantastic and set off the colours of Derwent6. This was the first thing that hit us when we turned up. We had a big list to go through with Julia and arrangements had been made with the upholstery man (Merick) and the lady (Irene) who was looking after all our fabric needs.

We had to go out to pick the flooring for the bathroom and it didn't take us long to find the one we wanted.

This should give us the stone effect we are after.

We then went out looking for fabric for the buttons, but this turned out a tad more difficult, so we ended up blowing it out for another day.

The dayroom seating framework had been fitted and also looked great. This will house the freezer and turn into the spare bedroom for guests on board.

In the engine room alot of the plumbing has been carried out and the shoreline wiring, but things are still a bit slow here.

We have decided to now go for brass porthole liners as we have seen the problems with the wooden ones blacking up with the condensation (we hope this is the right choice)

We sorted out the height of the cratch as A.J.Canopies are measuring the cover for fitment, they are also making a horn cover for us.

We lost alot of photos this time (don't ask us why) so we haven't got many to post.

Things just arn't happening fast enough for us, as we can't wait to get out on the cut, but we're sure it will all come together in the end.........we hope!!!!

While we were out on the cut at Crick we met up with Les on Valerie, happy cruising mate.
