Measuring for the new sole plate before the deck is exposed.
The first roof beam can now be seen.
First few roof beams are now being fitted.
With the Lookout nearing completion, our team from Frank Hall & Son are now starting the larger room on the boat deck that we are calling the Upper Saloon.
Things are moving fast as the season approaches!
As soon as the first latex floor cover was done, in came our heating contractors to lay the new underfloor heating system before a final coat of latex and later the new carpet.
The lining of the Lookout continues around the Light tower; and you can see the shiny wet first layer of latex coat for the flooring.
The metal deck gets a couple of coats of latex to prepare it for the underfloor heating.
The Foredeck and Upperdeck are now linked by a newly fitted staircase ready for the start of the season. Thanks to the team at Frank Hall & Son.
Ten new custom made ventilators for our ten forward cabins
Clive fitting the first ventilator
Duct work & cabling being installed
After taking the old forward ventilation system out of service during phase 1, we’re instating a new, but similar system to maintain comfort in our guest accommodation. With one pipe required for every cabin, 10 holes are to be drilled in the Foredeck & Whaleback with pipes to be run through the cabin ceilings. Our contractors are making great progress and we look forward to blessing our guests with quiet, efficient, ventilated cabins for the start of the season.
Final fitting before galvanising
The scaffolders came to remove the temporary staircase so that Frank Halls & Sons could bring our brand new custom made staircase onboard for lining up.
A perfect fit, so now it’s off to the galvanisers for the weekend before returning to be installed next week. The exterior is taking shape and we can’t wait to start using it!
