That will break the surface tension of the water, and keep it from running back against the house sides and windows. It also makes it easier to caulk, and get a good seal at the joint.

Yeah mate have a 20mm trim that will go on and act as the break 👍 :-)

Well today I was working on the anchor locker. I have glassed tapped all of the seams and made a new Sampson post.

I had 4ltrs of old engine oil so I poured that inside the post before welding the cap on. She won't ever rust on the inside! Lol.

Window and door frames are made. I'm getting them this week to test fit first before they are sent away for electroplating and glazing.

Will post pics over the weekend.

Window and door frames arrived today. Will test fit them and do all the pre-drilling etc now then return them to the shop for electroplating and anodising then glazing in 6mm laminated safety glass then I'll wrap them up and put them away until the boat is painted. Will post some more pics on the weekend once they're in

Yo - Boat Champ! Great do see you back at it.

Silver/tungsten roof will look good (be kinda bad-ass)... but... be careful of the heat transfer! That color loves to absorb solar rays.


Can hardly wait for more progress-picts... window frames look good - You're really coming along again!

Yeah time to pick myself up. I'm not the first nor will I be the last to go through a relationship break-up. Shit happens. What's done is done. It's been 6 weeks now. Time to show some spirit and stop being a sook and to cowboy up!
