As I have to work from my wheelchair I have to stick to the smaller jobs, so I am now going to try my hand at making the control panels with the use of fibre optics.............your thoughts and ideas please.

Big decision there for someone from your neck of the woods.
Blue or red interior?

Had another spell on the maltby build, I now have all the electrics in along with a working winch and bow thruster and hey it all works.
Another job I got done was to finish cutting out the windows...hate that job. So now it's ready for the tank test (bath) and hopefully there will be no leaks.

Regards Dave.

Thanks mate, it's getting there slowly, one of my next jobs is to try my hand at the fitting out of the wheelhouse but at the moment I keep looking and then put it off. I will have to get my head into it and have a go.

Regards Dave.

Thanks Adam, this is my first of the M class and it has been a bit of a challenge so far. I agree they look very good on the water....very powerful looking. A long way to go yet but I will get there in the end.  :-))

     Hi Dave,
          She is coming along nicely. Re the leg glad to hear you are okay! stick with the physio and you will be fine. When I had my mishap????? it took three months to get my knee to be able to bend to 90 degrees, of course I just said "oh dear that's rather sore" liar liar your bums on fire etc, etc.
     It is very easy to take the soft route i.e. couch potato but I don't think that is you, please keep the photos and build log coming its great to see.
         Kind regards,
                Faz. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))

Hi Faz, thanks mate I am happy with the way the boats coming on.....all well at the moment. As for my leg I am working on walking again with the physio 2 days a week but I may have to have another op on it due to a set back, but it won't stop me working on my boat even if I have to carry on from my wheelchair for a bit longer anyway take care.

Regards Dave.
