Forward Shelter (Cabin) 2

The Restoration and alterations continue. Waste tank now fitted, and all pipe work. Not originally fitted in RNLI service but this is now required, because Sea Toilets are not allowed to discharge into the Sea on Inshore waters. Lots of work just for a C***.

The bunk spaces, originally half filled with Air Cases now need boards to support the Mattresses, another little, but time consuming job, wish I had bought a Barge with straight sides!

My next Job will be to move back to finishing the Heads, now the mattresses are out of the way!
