fitting- out in progress
fitting- out in progress

For reasons I cannot fathom, this is the only picture I have of my 2 years of work on fitting-out Minnow.
Every day, I climbed over the old boat into the new one and measured and drilled, and sawed til late. Minnow devoured lengths of wood, sheets of hardboard and MDF, planks, insulation, staples, drill bits, preservative, then paint and varnish and sealant, some hooks, one doorknob and a lock, if Minnow needed it, Minnow got it.
The bulkheads are made from six dumped interior office doors which I cut vaguely to shape.

I used just a jig saw which had been my Christmas present to myself 20 years previously, and my ex-boyfriend's father's 35 year old electric drill, along with a borrowed heavyweight cordless 'driver to screw the wooden batten to the steelwork, I bought a new small cordless 'driver on a friend's advice, to 'save my wrist'.

The end result is a beautiful home, and a nerve trapped in my spine.
