JW's 'umber build

This thread is posted partly by not so popular request (2) but mainly 'cause Terminator thinks me middle name is Manos and that is seriously concerning.

For those who find this stuff boring, look away now.

The story starts about a year ago.
 
The boat straight from Humber having its first fitting to the new trailer prior to galvanising.

Engine, DPX and tanks all in place. It finally felt as though there was some headway being made.

Plans changed part way through. There was a decision made to turn the boat into a cabin rib. The general layout is shown in the CAD.
