Andy just drew two lines and brought Derwent6 to life...When the name goes on your boat it brings tears to your eyes...The stern was then painted. We wanted this a bit different which is why we decided to have a heart
On the bow we went for the traditional Shropshire eye.
In the cratch (the area in the front of the boat) the table had been set up and the cushions had arrived. You can see Andy painting the bow.
While we were there the floor was being laid in the bathroom and it was definitely the right choice.
The radiators are now in, but there are still some problems here that need to be sorted out.
In the engine room the washing machine and tumble drier are now fitted and the desk area is being formed. This will be a multi-purpose room and a bit of a den.
This week we are still waiting for the wood burning stove and freezer to turn up but it is winging it's way to us from Denmark. We took Andy back home and he also took the engine room doors with him for painting.. He is painting the roses, diamonds and Castle. There is a story to tell on them, but I will fill you in when we collect them from Andy.
There still seems to be a hell of a lot of work to do, but we are being told launch could be in a couple for weeks....(We can't hold our breath much longer) With a birthday coming up on the 22nd it seems a good day to launch.
