I then placed the console back in to make sure its position before cutting holes for cable trunking fuel hose etc.

Then the fuel tanks went back in and the cable truncking was laid under the floor

The hole was cut for the aft deck hatch and the fuel lines run from the fuel tanks to the tank shut off/change over valve in the aft locker.

I moved the two nav lights off the A-frame and put them on the front of the console aswell as the two fillers for the fuel tanks.

This is as far as I have got so far. I am waiting for some fuel hose to arrive before I can finish off the tanks and wire in the senders. Need to get the bilge pump and transducer bonded to the hull aswell before the floor goes down for good

Looking good where did you get the hatch from & how much was it?

Looks like a lot of work and some good progress since last time.

Just noticed that you have put your nav lights on the front of the console. Nav lights are normally configured to be side mounted to give an arc from straight ahead round to 22.5 degrees aft of the beam. Will yours still do this? Trying to do some mental gymnastics to decide if they will retain the correct arcs if mounted upside down?

The hatch came from International Marine Supplies http://www.internationalmarinesupplies.co.uk .

It was the "IMS 861 - Twin handled hatch. 37cm x 37.5cm Overall 28.9cm x 28.3cm Hole cut out." It cost 26.02 Reatail inc.

Its shock and pressure resistant too which is good as no doubt a dive cylinder will be bounced off it at some point. I did jump up and down on it to test it and it didn't break

Not quite. I mounted them as close to the edge of the console as possible to retain as much of the arc as possible, but the console does block most of it. The main thing is they point forward and sideways. I don't think anyone will pick up on a few degrees when at sea
