Aft Slatted Sole

The aft lockers are almost complete and I have now added the aft slatted sole (aka duck boards) I've made from Douglas Fir.

Forward Storage

I have now begun to build the forward storage, which comprises a seat over and locker under.

At this juncture it dawned on me that the inclusion of a bucket would provide a head (toilet WC) ... rather having my dear wife hanging over the side!!

The aft stowage is coming along and I keep moving back and forward to allow glue to set on one end or the other.

Aft Lockers

I had to make knees to reinforce the gunwales, and then fixed them in place at regular intervals, on either side.

Next came the forecastle deck and the floors.

This whole area in the transom area now gets boxed in to form a locker.

Technically the locker top is a quarterdeck, a bit too grand so we will call it a locker top. 

I then cut and fitted the bulkhead that also serves as locker front

There are two lockers (under) that can be used as seats (over) and I have began to fit the longitudinal bulkheads for these.

My next move is to complete the two lockers
