Week Thirty

I know I have been saying this most week's but it is true, it has been another great week with the progress of Hadar's fitout. It is a milestone in away as it is week Thirty of the fitting out. We never get bored of watching her progress, knowing we are another step closer to having her back in the water, and setting off on our travels.
Installed Stove Chimney.
Roger has made, painted and installed the chimney for the coal stove in the front cabin.

Port Side Paintwork Revealed.

Tina has removed the masking from the port cabinside to reveal the paintwork.

And from the Other End.

Cabin Doors and Cabin Rear.

Tina has now undercoated the red section of the stern of the cabin.

Gear Control Wheel.

Roger has made and installed the gear control rod and attached the wheel. This allows the boatman to change gear in the gearbox from the steering postion. In the photo above you can see the wheel just inside the boatman's 'ole. The photo below shows the rod extending through the boatman's cabin and into the engine room.

Gear Control Rod Inside the Cabin.

Cabin Doors and Cabin Rear.

The Calorifier has now been fully plumbed in to the engine and generator water cooling circuits and the cold in and hot out. This now completes all the plumbing throughout the boat.

Gear Control Wheel.

Roger has made and installed the speed control rods and attached the wheel. This allows the boatman to change the engine speed from the steering postion. The speed wheel just inside the boatman's 'ole on the other side to the gear wheel, it is the smaller of the two. The photo below shows the rod extending through the boatman's cabin and into the engine room, then via the worm drive mounted in the ceiling the rotation is converted into an up/down motion to operate the throttle on the engine.

Hi Del and Al.

Thanks for the message. The stove is an Aarrow Acorn http://www.stovesareus.co.uk/, it is much smaller than a Morso, but gives off as much heat. We have a Morso on Misty Lady with a Back boiler and it is a pain in the butt. If you have a morso do not have a back boiler, the shape of their boiler is dreadful and rusts. The back boiler in the Aarrow is stainless and a much better shape.
The waterfall tiles are of Coniston, and they were expensive as hand painted, but we absolutely love them.
Off to check your diary.
