Once the hatch recesses had been routed out the bare wood was sealed covered and then gelcoated. A few layers of gelcoat gave me enough material to work with; it was then cut back with the router to the desired shape. Picture 2 shows the recess with some 'finishing' of the gelcoat going on. Sounds easy doesn't it
The third picture shows one of the chosen hatches in position. The eventual intention is to make the hatches out of glassfibre, but that is a job for when the boat is on the water.
The fuel filler is to go in the front of the console. Someone whose opinion I value said that it is much easier to fill when at sea with a centrally mounted filler. Good enough for me. To go over the filler I needed a backrest cushion for the suicide seat; pictures 4 and 5 show the backplate for this cushion in production. The edge of this backplate was moulded using plasticine, the two 'ears' that you can see in 4 are recesses for the hinges, to set them at the right angle.
5 shows the gelcoat going in.

The first picture here shows the fibreglass going into the mould of the backplate, the second as it came out of the mould (my console ). Picture 3 shows the fuel filler recess being gelcoated over prior to being rubbed down, something I've become very experienced at
Picture 4 shows the templates for the various cutouts for the console whilst I decided what went where
Picture 5 shows the cut outs nearly completed.

The first picture shows the console coming together quite nicely.
Picture 2 shows the first stages in making a trim piece to go on the outside of the screen. This will be bolted through to clamp the screen.
Picture 3 shows the matting being applied and 4 shows the piece in the later stages of production and the sort of position it will go in, although as you can see it is somewhat perched on there!
Picture 5 shows the underside of the smaller battery mounting, all should come clear with the next set of pics.

The first picture shows the battery and oil tank holder. This is to be screwed and Sikaflexed into the bottom of the lower console. You can just make out the plate on the studs in picture one which will clamp down onto the battery. As you can see I have gone for a twin battery installation. The battery selection will be by one of the BEP split chargers.
Picture 2 shows the lower console and all the 'bits' stuffed in. Now to wire up
Finally before my typing hand gives out, picture 3 shows the slightly less than optimum seat cushions in place on one of the rear jockey seats. They will be replaced when funds allow

Very Impressive Oil Tank and battery holder. They certainly won't budge

I have it on good authority that JSP's SR is getting wet on Saturday!
