Normally they are like this, 99% of time:



    But for port side to berthing (fe) they can be like this (not great pic sorry):


    OK you convinced me,
    I'll put them on the list for the metalworker;

    - SS removeable platform side rails
    - SS side rails along the engines in the E/R, for safety down there but most of all because I like them, as I have seen a very nice example in a ORY not that long ago
    - SS foldeable dive ladder , I have prepared a drawing,
    will post and asc comment on this, but would like to do some diving first, and reconsider the details now that we have the new platform.

    It must have been a popular choice among IT builders, some decades ago: place the winches wherever appropriate for maneuvering, without bothering about the crew feet...
    Been there, done that.
    I suggested foldable cleats for the red position, anyway.
    I think I'll do all,
    - the fixed cleats on the transom (blue position), as I believe spring lines should be fixed there
    - the foldable cleats on the fixed platform, ao for fixing a side fender,
    could be usefull while mooring in windy conditions, as experienced yesterday.
    (unless I can use the side rail poles for that )
    - foldable cleats on the hi lo platform for temporarely fixing the tender

    thanks Mapism for the link to these foldable cleats,
    exactly the same model as the original Canados.

    Did you sort out your rudder tracking issue? Did the boat weave as before on your delivery trip?
    Thanks !

    more info about the rudder tracking in the rudder thread

    No. When we get old we will club together and build our own boat-geeks asylum :-)

    Are you going to fit air bottle racks in the lazarette, either side of the door?
    indeed C, we are very very pleased that we found this solution with the dive gear,
    remember at early stage of this project, we still intended to place the tanks and gear on the cockpit.
    (was the main reason for the new steps !?!?!?)
    After we had the idea for the transom door, only then we considered placing dive gear downstairs.

    have a look at the pictures, foto with the tank,
    on these 3 benches (yet unpainted) we will place the dive sets fully prepared with jacket, stages, ...
    divers can sit in front of it, attach this on their back, stand up and go up to the platform (thats the way we do this usually on liveaboards)
    the lazarette is too small for more then 3 or 4 divers at a time,
    but they could first place a few sets on the platform, and while sitting on the fixed platform (hi lo lowered), the other 3-4 divers could use this method to attach a set.
    ....
    you must come and see it to understand

    V,
    more noice reduction in the saloon has never been the aim,
    for that you need rubber or lead on the ceiling, and lots of it,
    and even then sound is coming through the air vents, side walls, doors, etc...

    I didn't notice difference in the saloon compared to before,
    had some sleep on the sofa during the return trip, so not too bad...
    should take my dB meter and do some measurements and compare with others...

    but inside the E/R BIG difference compared to previous old situation,
    Alfonso noticed himself without me asking,

    before you could not go in there during cruising without ear protection,
    now still lots of noice, but not ear bleeding.

    I'm so sorry you missed the trip..
