This is part of a new anchor locker for the Fairey Huntress. This will be built in the boat and then covered in fibre glass.
I have been cleaning and painting each cabin in the yacht Spring Breeze. This involved removing all the covering strips and fitting which were then put back after the painting was done.
Witch’s deadwood was patched up with new oak and a new platform added to take the prop shaft fitting. The lower section of the frames ahead of this were also replaced with new grown oak ones.

I made a new steering consul and instrument panel for the Fairey Huntress. This is closer to the original design than what was there, made from teak faced ply.

I replaced a new section of aft cockpit coaming on the Huntress Marilion of Wight, as well as other smaller jobs.
The restored and painted iron floors have now been fitted to the forward part of Witch, fastened with silicon bronze coach bolts. The new sole bearers have also been added. The locker on the left is part of the original and will be duplicated on the starboard side as well.
One of the short sections of planking on Witch. Made of high quality Douglas Fir instead of the original pitch pine that is no longer available. Fastened with silicon bronze screws.
All the lightweight foam oak veneer trim panels now fitted.
I made these to fit the oak trim around the coachroof on the cat. Everything floated in mid air so these had to support the trim but still leave room for the blinds to fit behind.
A very small teak grating for a cockpit drain and a hatch cover. For Moreton Marine
