That red box is commonly used for fire hoses but would have a red sign on it if that were the case. I suspect it has breathing apparatus in it with this sign:

Most pleased with this cobbled together light using part of another light fitting, a brass pin and an LED to simulate a glass bowl. A blob of 5 min resin creates the top. There is a painted one in top picture

Very tidy indeed Andy  :-)) 


These panels appear to be 'outward opening:o .......is this correct?


I would have thought that the Porthgarth Class were full sea going & so such hinged panels were inward opening ?
This could also be an element in the design Classifications between say Lloyds & Det Norsk Verits, ABS ..... or such etc

No
Actually everyone who's seen it in the flesh like it as it is and agree adding glazing would not improve it. Out on the water you'd never know
