engine and gearbox is out, all fittings have been removed, painting and refurbishment of deck is close to completion and not long before we start putting things back.

|Forepeak hatch to be refitted with a better catch. Occasionally it would spring open!|
|Treadmaster will be replaced around the gas locker and in cockpit|
