Bargain Dryer...

Picked up this nice little dryer from Asda this week, it was only £97 and looks the part should fit nicely into the spot we have planned for it on board. Customer reviews are good too.

More Decoration & the first Rad...

This weekend we completed the oiling of the panelling to the side walls with exception of the galley as we had too much stuff in the way and it would have been too much effort to move. The ceiling also received a couple of coats and should be completed next weekend.

We decided to take out the insulation down one side of the water tank as we were worried that the breather pipe was sagging and may have caused the water gauge not to work if it held water, it was a bit awkward but I'm hoping it's sorted and it was easier to do now rather than later.

The first radiator was also hung on the wall ready for piping up, maybe we'll get the others on next weekend.

Decoration to the new boarding...

Today Corinne applied the first coat of oil to the plywood sheets down the starboard side below the gunwales and second coated the V-T&G boards above, while I finished the last few boards off and fixed cable clips down one side under the gunwales for the 12v socket power.

Here the diagonal boards haven't received their second coat yet, the first coat of oil was applied before fixing.
