To match the oak floor steps have been made for the engine room post side (the vertical ones) and saloon side hatch. Although in thed saloon there is a hatch each side, the single (sloping) steps will be moved to the side which we are moored on.
In a visit to the woodyard we were lucky to find offcuts of exactly the right dimensions for these steps.
Dave has also completd laying the oak floor in the engine room port side which used up the more grainy and knotty bits less suitable for the domestic accomodation. Also a step up to the floor level in the back cabin, which also doubles as a storage box was constructed. This has been dismantled for treating with polyx oil so a photo will be added later.
The skirting boards and pipe boxing is also made of oak to match the floor boards and will be photgraphed when completed.
