    Default Changing the boats around in the boat yard and the workshop


    Now in the finishing jobs on this Hardy 25 which should be leaving the boatyard early next month for its new home in the River Severn

    Then there will be a change in the boatyard and the workshop as boats goon to different stages of their refits,


    Now that the carpets in the cabin are now finished being glued in position it is time to fit the bunk boards jig saw puzzle to being to be fitted



    The last of the removable bulkheads now back in position and the head linings can start to be fitted back in position







    The blocks to fit on the bulkhead at each end and the shelf can go back in position





    Just got to make and fit the blocks to fit each end of the shelf







    The main bunk top boards back in position and just need to be fixed the back set in position







    Come a long way in getting the interior back the way it was when the boat left Hardy Marine 35 years ago

    The first of the shelves going back into position



    The bunk Tops back in position now it just needs the cushions to finish this part off







    Apart from putting thestarboard board back in position after the locker is painted out the only bit missing is the cushions for the front berths







    A fresh coat of paint in the rest of the lockers to finish off the inside of the lockers

    The cockpit boards get set out ready to make a new set to match the rest of the cockpit panelling



    The forward end of the cabin now finished off apart from putting back the cushions and back rests on the shelves







    The two cockpit locker panels now all varnished ready for their final coat of satin varnish to go on in the last week before it goes back to its ownebr />








    The cockpit bulkheads have been rubbed down and given several coats of varnish to bring them back to life as best as they can be and they have come up well

    The first of the creature comforts to have when cruising with young children who wish to watch TV or play a video game.





    Always needed when cruising a place to cook dinner or a light snack







    Looking more homely just got to get the solar panel fitted on the cabin roof and the head lining panels can go back up and it will begetting there

    Lovely work. I enjoy following the jobs you do.

    This has probably been asked and answered, but is there any chance for larger photos?

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your work!

    The new side and aft panelling being made and fitted to enclose the aft end of the cockpit,



    The aft panelling is made into lockers while the side panelling covers the blocks and fixings for the aft cleats which are fitted to the cockpit sides















    The locker doors in position and just needing edge trimming and the hinges fitted to the fold down doors which are the aft cockpit lockers
