Boat build

Another experiment in photo posting, this photo was taken yesterday, if this works I will add earlier pictures of the build and bore you all.

Fantastic, it worked, now I can add earlier pictures if there's any appetite for them out in TM land. I might even do it there's not.😂

I've not posted any updates for a while so here's some pictures taken today.

Bi fold door on the head, easier to open whilst standing in the restricted floor space.

Taken from the helm seat and shows the steering pump and bow thruster control now fitted. Also the shower door is complete and closes with a cubicle type lock.

Head bi fold door from a different angle.

Fully upholstered helm seat. Just requires the Brazilian Mahogany trim adding to hide the plywood edges.

And the cabin seating with the dark grey vinyl fitted to the base.

Thanks again for the positive comments chaps.
A spring launch would be great but I've seen many launch dates come and go in the past!! I might adopt Leo of Sampson boat companies standard reply to a launch date for Tally Ho " in two years time" then when I do launch it'll be two years early 😃

Some other jobs have been done since the move outside like the bilge pump installed, steering pipes installed and through the transom but still to connect at the rudder.
A little bit more of the wiring done but I really need my son to complete the 240v and inverter wiring so I can get the galley units installed and complete. This will also allow me to work in the evening.

I'm also going to get my original NAD 3020 amp repaired and upgraded to provide the sound. It'll slot into the hole you see in the cabin seating. Still contemplating which speakers to install.
