Fit Out

The fit-out was undertaken by Harry Watson Smith of Camrod Marine.  A lot of thought went into the planning of the layout and the building of the components.  It is difficult to recall the exact sequence of activities, except that I began work at the bow then worked aft.  I designed, built and installed the major components first, then came back to finish off the detail.

The wood used is Myrtle or Myrtus - look here...   I tried to get Tasmania Myrtle but could not get sufficient so the 2 cubic meters came from South America.  I then had to get 50 sheets of ply veneered onto waterproof ply of different thicknesses.  This I did but it turned out too dark for my requirement so back to the yard for more veneers and 50 more sheets. 

Here are a series of photos taken during the construction phase.  The next was the dodger here...
