Glad it went well, she is looking good.

Sorry I couldn't be around to shadow you on your first trip out.

Andy,

Looks nice. A few extras such as amber flashing lights and she will be a real boat.

On a serious note I hope they get the oil problem sorted.

Nick

Andy,
If you are struggling for seats I've got some you could have, they will not be the right colour of course, but if you want them as a temporary measure.........................

Thanks for you kind gesture, if they had been old worn out things I would probably take you up on your offer. I would be too worried about damaging them however. If my seat backs turn up tomorrow there is a chance I can get one seat base and a seatback made in time for the Friday cruise.

I'm in the process of trying to co-ordinate seat backs and upholstery for this Friday's cruise. I've been working tonight on the seat back chassis to support the cusions so that I can rush then down in the morning to the upholsterers.

I still haven't really decided what colour material the seats will be covered in, but a dark blue grey with blue piping is favorite.

This is what I've been up to:

Are you addicted to the glass yet !

I know I would be with that much glass. I'd be a happy chappy in my garage with that amount of solvent hanging round.

I'll be worried on Friday if you've got a big stupid grin on your face.

LSD or GRP.

At this rate GRP will be getting classed as a Class C drug. Better keep that quiet.

Thanks Paul and Kathleen for your kind comments.

Things have been a little slow the last week, however I have the engine sorted (they said that before) and has had the oil pump replaced, however they did leave a one way valve in the boat and I took it to pieces today and found water droplets inside , could have been this that caused the alarm to go off.

Seat backrests are at the polishers (should have had these three weeks ago), upholstery is going well and I have 4 seat cushions awaiting fitment to the jockeys, I've seen one of the backrests (they couldn't do my design ) so this is a compromise backrest, still looks good though. The large seat cushion that will span the transverse seat is also being made. I'll have to think of an ingenious way of hinging this so that it opens without obstruction.

Today I have made the openings in the jockeys larger with nice radius in the corners.

I'm really want to get out and sea trial the engine ASAP to check the oil problem is sorted and to check the performance of a 19" Viper prop I have aquired, but with the weather this weekend and no seat backs to support me I'll have to pospone this trial till later

Andy,

Keep us posted on the sea trial. I might be able to get out for a few hours later next week.
