Very nice Codders it looks a big beast! Love the blue tubes combined with the teak deck and white jockeys, looks really classy, should be a treacle magnet

Looks good even though you haven't got it home yet! Knew it would turn up eventually, I believed you all along. And what's so wrong with Ibiza blue?! Surely it beats Alpine any day

i bet you are chuffed to bits that it is nearly finished after all this time. it looks very long and wide and i reckon mine would fit in the space in front of your console! will it be ok to tow? what is the distance internally between the toobs?. Lots of space so you could throw a party on there for all your mates


so the big question is what will you call it? must have a name in mind?

and when will we see a pic of captain fishy aboard the codship then?

Codders,

I would seriously question the way they have opened that sump up in the stern.

Looks like they have only opened up the deck and coated the end grain.

This will absorb water in no time and blow the whole deck!!

This should be boxed off and covered in GRP to stop any ingress of water into the plywood.

IMHO and from experience.

All a matter of taste - your boat looks pretty slick as well.

Deck is not real wood - only flexiteak - there will be a grp flange around I think.

I appreciate it is flexi teak but the main deck underneath will need to be well sealed. Just an observation from the picture thats all!!

Your boat is a fair old size as well - mine should look a bit better with some wear patches on.

I think the overall width is around 8' 10" or thereabouts - much wider and I would need a police escort!!!

Should be fun towing it behind the discovery - NOT - the mirrors are far smaller than my Landie ones.

As to the name - VERY sore point - was going to be Grand Slam - wooden spooon would be more like it this year!!!

one question on the flooring, how will you stop it fading, a lot of teak decking i have seen on the expensive large boats seems to fade which is a shame..
