Thickeng Up The Edges

I am not sure where the idea comes from to thicken the edges of a narrowboat.  Some manufacturers do it some don't  Personally I like it.  It gives a solid look to the boat.  So I did my front today.

This is how it started. Thin! (5mm)

Additional part made and spacers inserted

 The finished job. Thick  (13mm)

Top & both sides done

This all took a lot longer than I would have imagined, but I'm pleased I took my time and got a nice finish ready for painting tomorrow.
