    In fact, it makes me wondering if I'm missing some good reason why the annular groove in the deck socket seems to interrupt the centerline...?
    Ah, but there is one line in the drawing which should not be there? ;-)

    Yup, that's a bodge. I did the annular groove in MS Paint after scanning the sketch as a jog because I didn't like the hand drawn annular groove, and didn't notice it covered the c/line till too late :-)

    Yup Rob. The screwdriver slot is a bodge :-)

    Also I think the curvy bit at the top where the tube is sawn off is technically wrong in a section drawing but I made a poetic licence departure from BS308 because it adds clarity imho in a *** packet sketch

    Here some extra pics from finished jobs
    some were finished in Rome, And some we did last weekend in Toulon.

    New sunbrella on the bow cushions



    Alfonso has painted a new anti slippery paint, (the old one was crackelled)
    On The wheelhouse roof



    And on the side deck roofs


    Some holes from old antennaís have been filled but not yet polished (not clear on the pic)


    This is a detail of the new scanstrud radar pole on top of the radar arch


    Have you noticed this detail, the curved solid teak on the gate door capping


    This was MapisM suggestion, a connection for the water hose, so that our water distribution has real fresh and drinkable water, we can make coffee with water from the tap



    But we added a pression stabilizer and a one way valve



    This one is for sure a solution for MikeF, a second power connection,
    Very handy here in Toulon, power conís are only 10 amps each.


    Remote control for the Victron Invertor / charger,
    With a shore current limit set at 10 amps !!! (has been very usefull this weekend)


    We finished the curtains for the new extra copilot bed (courtesy to jfm)










    And in order to avoid the wakeup of the complete Toulon Marina,
    we replaced the old retrofitted cheapy and noisy toilet on deck level
    with a real tecma



    we have been testing all kinds of Quick led lights, some are good, some are bad, will report on that later





    New sunbeds on the flybridge (really really expensive in local Carrefour )

    And last but not least,
    To fulfill the generally accepted
    high level forum standard,

    (MikeF donít read this pls)

    Our self made Scatter cushions;











    They even make the leather sofa integrate with the new color scheme





    Can I apply for a OB rating now ?
    Or is the boat and her captain too old for that

    we have modified the old existing cockpit covers;

    new and a lot more windows,
    (there were only 3 small ones, and they were milky and yellow)

    also new zippers and a good cleaning,

    appeared to be very usefull last weekend;



    Q.

    would like to leave the cockpit covers "on" during long unused periods,
    but I'm afraid that wind will damage these covers.
    so I'm looking for a nice and clean, but reliable fixing system
    to fix the lower edges of the covers on the hull,

    its obvious that it needs to be easy fittable / detacheable !

    idea's are welcome, thanks !

    thanks Jimmy,
    yes we have thought a lot about that,
    we wanted something completely opposite to the massive pool of wood,

    I even allowed a few blue cushions
    he but then, this is Blue Angel

    Love it BartW. A proper transformational refit. Looking forward to next MBY article

    I too like the grey sunbrella. Might do same myself on next boat

    [NerdAlert] Is that the new soft-close lid on your tecma loo there? Is it any good? [/NerdAlert]
