Now that the end is within sight with the ribs as there are three left to do in the cockpit, it is now time to look are the other jobs on the refit list.

The forecabin area is now in need of finishing off with a couple of small jobs up there to do, a few nails need clinching up and a coat of paint in a few areas that have got missed over the past few months. Apart from that the forecabin area is finished a just few bit need sorting. The main body of work is in the main cabin and the cockpit where most of the refit has taken place and the most disruption has been with new cabin sides and roof and the whole of the cockpit as been removed and has to be redesigned to make the best use of the limited room in the cockpit.

Then the two major jobs will be started the filling and fairing of the hull, the varnishing and covering of the cabin sides and roof and then the clearing out of the seams on the bottom and the re-caulking the seams where necessary and then the antifouling of the bottom and the re-launching of the boat.

The refit has been a long one this time, but it should now have resolve main of the major problems that have plagued the boat for a number of years.
