Interesting choice of storage you have just in front of the console.
I thought that was a storage/seat but wasn't sure about the colour match!

Well spotted, it is the on board hot tub!

The guys are going to colour match it!
It will be able to be bolted in when one of the seats is removed.

But the fact the the seats can unbolt is a great feature.
It means I can add in a bottle rack if and when needed.
Also for film work it will give a large stable area for the camera tripod.

Thanks for the comments please keep em comming!

Dr Wha Wha we are working on NMEA 2000


Best regards

Well some of you maybe thinking what else happens behind the scenes whilst a boat is being built for a new venture.

Just to give you an insite here is a couple of shots of the "mobile office".
The trailer unit was built in 1986 and is pretty sound.
She is 2.3m x 3.8m.

The end colour will be yellow and it started dark green.
So far as well as the new paint job we have started to re-wire, brush and Hammerite the under side.
The ali trim on the sides is being cleaned then left ali colour.
The door, window and window cover will be black.

Inside there will be new flooring and kitchen units going down one side.
At the far end from the door will be two rails for clothing and life jackets.

So where does this sit on the Rib? Won't it make visibility a little hard?
