Invader 22
My main site home allsorts *** *** Progress

An up to date on the progress on the cockpit area - had to put these two pics together, just to remind myself what I started with !

The oak will be left to do whatever comes naturally - the new retaining battens either side the washboards are Sepele - same profile as the original but beefed up on thickness. They have also been bolted right through to the inside.

The new washboards are Robbins best 15mm marine, all Sepele veneers - with a good face grain - these will be varished to match the rest of the cabin details. The overlap is to be a polished stainless plate, rather than a bit of timber, to which I'm having welded two catchplates for some lockable rigid fasteners.

There's a lot of work between these two images ! but I've enjoyed every minute - well nearly every !
