Oak floor completed and oiled.

The oak floor has been laid from the front bulkhead back as far as the engine room.
The section through the engine room on the port side will be laid later.
The floor has been treated with polyx oil on both sides and the top given a second coat.

The hearth is inset by about 5mm as the quarry tiles used were 14mm rather than 19mm as these tiles have gone out of prouction. The 5mm downstand to the hearth is not considered a problem and could even be advantageous in retaining any spilt dust or cinders.

Although it hardly shows in this photo, the galley units have received a coat of cream undercoat.
