    Phase 2: Re-construction.

New Year so new cribblog but work continues to put back the shower. Will keep adding to the top of this file as progress gets made.

   15 February 2020.

Just about finished the woodwork, still needs a bit of snagging here and there but the major work is done now. Need to tile inside the new bit of wall and go round the joins with bathroom seal. Then a good application of sandpaper and get some paint on it.

The observant may have noticed that the control lever for the shower is now in the more conventional position being underneath the controller. I didn't think it mattered much when I put it on but working in the shower got a nasty surprise when I accidentally knocked against it and got well soaked with cold water.

Water back on! There is a raging gale outside but all warm and cosy inside even if a bit noisy with the wind buffeting the ropes and stern covers. So pleased to have the water all hooked up again as have been able to do the washing up and clean things, but not too many just yet.

Finally finished the tiling, with just one and some odd looking bits left. I think there were only about three that didn't need any cutting at all which is why it has taken so long. Still have the sealing to do around the joins.

Daffodils and snowdrops outside although whether they will survive the ministrations of the CRT grass cutters remains to be seen, the patch nearest to Cribbit got blasted last week these just about hanging in.

Bit more tiling and plenty of cutting in. The tiles are from mplastic tiles.

Back wall of the shower, even more fiddly bits still to do at the top.

Started on the tiling, slow work as lots of fiddly cutting in. My shower stall is not as square as one thought or would have liked. A combination of poor woodworking, wobbly wood from Mr. Wickes and boat shaped boats..

These are mplastic tiles to keep the centre of gravity low.

Port side complete, ran off in search of more adhesive. Too close for a proper pic.

Now for the side wall.

Well actually the first job was to get the door in.

Lined up and sort of vertical, hard to tell on a boat.

Hmmm.

Back wall of the shower now in ... the tricky bit as it all had to be fitted round the sloping side and gunwale. Hopefully, the rest will go a bit faster.

Handy holes allow for ventillation.
