Looking good

Looking goodYesterday's deckhead insulation picture was a little out of context, I know.

Here you see the overall impact of recent progress in the aft accommodation space.

It's becoming progressively easier to envisage the place as it will be with the woodwork completed, and varnished, and a ceiling in.

I also notice that this space is becoming that much better to be in, especially now it's warm down there.

  1. it's looking awesome! So how do you attach your woodwork to your steelwork?

  2. Hi Steve

    I use a Hilti gun - a top piece of, rather scary, kit. http://timzim.blogspot.com/2006/08/battens-started.html

  4. aha! i see! And presumable because you're attaching them sideways into the steel struts (as opposed to firing nails into the hull itself!) you dont get problems with moisture or rust or whatever coming through the nail from the steel hull? I guess cos the nails only go into the batens, and thenm there's a separate nail or screw or whatever attaching any inner walls to the baten, there's no continuous path for cold or moisture.

  5. Hi Steve

    You are correct about not firing the nails through the hull.

    That there is no continuous path for moisture was more by luck than judgement.

    I still have some exposed beams, which I'm going to cover using foil insulation sheeting. So they are at least covered with something.

    Cheers
