 Onward and upwards things are moving forwards I am pleased to say.

To start with both engines are now fitted with shafts connected. The exhausts are also 

run to the transom with  swan necks immediately inside the transom. 

Two very pretty brass hand pumps for extracting the oil from the sumps of the 1.5 ltr

BMCs.

Photo 5 The frame work for the galley frontage drawers and cupboards etc.with the bilge

which will be hidden given a good coat of paint.

Photo 6 showing the spirit stove in place, the Taylor s stove will be lifted in through one 

of the skylights if time allows, this will have an oven and grill but may not be operational

in time   for Beccles.

Back to Emily B.

Work continues on cleaning and tidying before more equipment arrives on board. This is the Taylors stove

which runs on pressurised paraffin. It is not that heavy in itself but to get it up and into the boat it becomes

awkward and heavy. Anyway if you have skylights and an overhead crane why strain yourself.  As you can see

the cooking side of the galley is beginning to take shape, I am really looking forward to cooking up a storm on these,

I will even have a stool to sit on. Luxury.

The engines in situ, I believe the Morse  control cables are going in over the next few days along with the  connecting

of the instruments on the dashboard.

I have had very little physical input into this over the last few months which is a shame logistics etc. but I do hope

to be at the launch at the very least.
