The idea of having the side boxes bonded to the hull and not the wheelhouse has turned out not to be entirely practical as the slopes of the sides makes fitting and removal for access to the interior of the hull very difficult and time consuming so its back to them being bonded to the wheelhouse. Crying or Very sad 

The wheelhouse has now been completed, the lockers bonded to the sides not the hull. the front lockers cut out, the mdf given two coats of mdf sealer and the first coat of primer done.


The hatches for the front lockers have been made and are removable so that the batteries and switches for the lighting circuits can be fitted inside.


The upper steering position floor grid has also been made. This is in two sections so that it can be fitted as the sloping sides and the mast support boxes do not allow it to drop straight in.


Finished grid trial fitted.

The numerous panels and lockers on the outside of the wheelhouse have been made and fitted.



The steps on the inside of the port rear box have also been made and fitted.


On the starboard side the steps have been cut into the panel. These steps are only on the Severns with out the Hiab crane as is the locker on top.


The bases for the large aerials made and fitted on each side of the upper position walls.


Upper steering position panels fitted along with the steering box/ compass stand. The rest of the panels are for instruments and will be added after the painting is done.


The rear access door to the wheelhouse has been made from multiple layers of styrene.


Door painted, along with the front locker lids, and ready to fit later.
