So I won't be doing any filling tomorrw then

Still lots of other jobs to do

Off to the fibre glassers again on Monday I think. I have some plastic padding type filler in the garage but it is a couple of years old though.

I must say that I'm pretty pleased the way things went today.

You could use Gelcoat filler in the gaps around the tank filler recess.

The marine superstore at Port Solent sell the filler beads.

They are open on a Sunday but will of course be a bit more expensive.

It's Finished!!

...The Anchor locker that is

Wasn't as easy as it seemed though as the Lid wasn't a perfect fit, which meant I had to back fill one of the corners using my new Fibreglass skills and then sand with the aid of an angle grinder the corner away till everything fitted OK, this was then flowcoated and sanded till it looked good. When I get some more time I'll do the bigger stuff like wiring, steering and control cable installation.

Well what a busy day I've had!

Fed most of the wires, cables hoses though the under deck trunking, this can be incredibly difficult by ones self at times.

As you can see from the pics, it was a messy affair with cables and hoses everywhere.

I've also been handy with the Silkaflex too, it always amazes me how it gets every where you don't want it.

I'll show you what I've done inside the Console as I've now fitted the battery carriers and oil tank.

More pics in a moment.

Looking sweet Andy.

You really are a lucky sod, new boat etc, and the bits you are doing now are the stuff I really enjoy.
Bet you are going to wire it up next, I find that strangely satisfying.
Sad bugger aren't I?
