Now the engine room bottom half is in it's final colour of RAL 7036 platinum grey gloss.
Although the engine looks the same shade on these photos it is actually the darker RAL 7010, tarpaulin grey.
The painting has been carried out at this early stage to allow the installation of pipework and services which would make painting later almost impossible.
Looking sternwards on the starboard side is the battery box alongside the engine.
The electrics panel will be on the front of a 6" deep cupboard built against the bulkhead where the wires are hanging. Below this, exposed to aid cooling, will be the inverter and battery charger.
