New cast aluminium deck hatches arrived yesterday, quite expensive but quite sexy with it!
Most of the work for the samson post mounting and the forward storage lockers is now done. Put a grey flowcoat in the lockers today and bonded in an extra layer of ply to reinforce the samson post and to give me some extra thickness to screw the hatches into.
I think theres more on how I've tied in the samson post to the hull structure in an earlier post. Suffice to say it won't be pulling out if I'm ever being towed
I'm using the original black aluminium post at the mo but if I get bored at any point I may knock out a polished stainless one just for the bling factor!
Watch out for more pics soon, I get my new Parker console early next week!!
