The main saloon was blue...
and is now white again. Crisp, shiny, bright white. I worried that stark white would be too cold, but I love it. It enlarges the space so much, brings in heaps of light and it just says 'boat'.
The galley is painted too, white again. There will be wood trim around the edges of the ceiling - helps hide the cracks and the power cords that will be run through soon.
And we've painted the roof of the wheelhouse (you would not believe how stained and revolting it was - probably from years of nicotine as the captain smoked while steering the boat - lucky no smell remains).
The old floor in our forward cabin has been ripped out ready for a new one. I love seeing the big heavy timbers of her keel.
There is a staircase to get to the top deck now instead of a dodgy ladder.
And the staircase has a new hatch through to the top deck.
But the most substantial progress of all? In the once-was-fishhold, we now have the beginnings of walls and doors and we have new floor to walk on. This will be the kid's cabins and playroom.
After a long, tiring month, I'm now have two weeks of annual leave and the kids have two weeks of school holidays. So I'm not sure whether I'll get heaps done, or nothing at all. Stay tuned!
