I have been a bit er busy with other things of late but I have started on the console build part of the project and have the rest of the deck cut and all the under deck strengthening in place to just fire it down.

But need to get a few things sorted out before that like

- Transom needs to go in – But I did last night managed to make up a 9mm ply pattern for this.
- Need to sort out a fuel tank and work out where it is going to sit
- And just remembered that I am looking to put in an under floor pipe for the control lines to run in so very glad I have not rushed to fit the floor just yet.

Placed order yesterday for more resin and the rest of the kit one needs. So with any luck and if I can clear my feet Sunday is looking like a good day to “bash on”

Shall get some more photos up as I move forward.

Transom is in

Thank you to all the words of advice on how to build a transom.

Well it was a long day, after starting at 11am and not calling it a day till 8:30pm. We managed to get the 3 sheets of 18mm for the transom cut and fitted after bonding them and clapping them with bolts to the original outer skin. Got the stringers in to add support for the floor and for added support for the transom. The knees have been cut and bonded to 40mm. They are not fitted as yet but looking to get these suck on tomorrow night…

I think I deserve the beer now…
