Too many projects - not enough time!!!

Thanks for your comments Ian. It is very difficult to monitor my hours because a) .- I am very slow and b). - too easily distracted and c). - working on a limited budget as I have spent too much money assembling my un-seaworthy Carrera fleet!!! Geoff.

The seats arrived today so I put the pods and seats in position to see how it would look. Geoff.

I have not had the chance(time) to do any more work on the boat, but now have the rubbing strake channel, grey hatches, laminated glass(front screen) and side screen acrylic panels and of course the seats/pods all here and ready to fit. I shall probably order the hydraulic steering system (Baystar?) this week, but will now start to loose out on the dry weather and long days. Geoff.

Whilst visiting my sister (her 70th b.day) at Canvey island on Sunday we decided to get a price for the hydraulic steering I need for the fast fisher. Whilst at the boatyard a monster catamaran came in so I took a few photos. This Blyth on Canvey and looked huge. I do not know how the lorry driver managed to make some of the turns required, but he did a fantastic job, sometimes passing within 1inch of some obstructions, steering the trombone trailer bogey from within his cab. I have not yet ordered the steering unit, but did buy 2 single piece white plastic moulded seats as I thought they were nicer (and cheaper) than the others. Geoff.
