Alpha Beta Gaga

When we visited today, Abdul presented our brand spanking new Beta Marine 60BHP engine to us. We've ordered it with a 'hospital silencer', which is supposed to muffle the noise of the engine and simultaneously make us less of a nuisance on the waterways.

In other news we had our first proper wander inside the new vessel, hopping across the bearers and imaging how it might look fully fitted out into a liveaboard boat. In the pictures below you'll notice the 4 bollards, 2 at stern and 2 at bow. I'm relaibly informed these are called Samson posts and are anchors to tie the boat off when mooring. Also pictured is:
  • Our 200 gallon stainless steel water tank, which will be insulated with foam and placed under the fore deck.
  • The stern deck railings, which will later be clad in wood to form a bench. 
  • The tubular hand rails which run along the roof.
  • Our gas locker and storage locker, which double up as steps onto the roof.
  • The apperature for the dog box
