Refitting a new section of cabin sole

The new section of cabin sole is now fitted in place after someone lost the old one when the boat was being stripped out for its refit. However, it did give me a chance to change the way it was made up and  made it possible to change the number of sections it was made up from, and made it easier to lift when inspecting the bilge area and clearing around the bilge pumps.

 The piece in behind the Porta loo is going to be fixed down with the section under the loo and ahead of the step into the cabin being lifting sections. The front one is for the log/ echo-sounder to make it possible to remove the transducer and the back one to check the manual and electric bilge pumps.
