Been to the boat for a couple of days and got a few more more jobs done.
I can finally reveal the steps which have been a work in progress for a while now.
The woodwork was done from my drawings by DW General Wood Machinists They have a CNC router which shaped the steps and plunge routed the slots to 8mm to receive the inserts. I made the inserts from 3mm x 10mm steel which I had chrome plated.
These steps were my wife's concept and of course it was my job to deliver. We have 2 dogs, one of which is getting on a bit and struggles with steps so we needed steps that they could get a good grip on but still look stylish.
Another job done was some the bow deck gritting.
Masking is the trick but it takes 90% of the job time
The finished gritting ready for final paint
Well half of its done. It's only practical to do sections at a time to keep it neat and manageable. All the corners are rounded as it looks better IMO.
