Blacking the water tank.

This is a bit out of sequence - there are some more recent pictures from inside the boat, but on the other camera. 

Today I painted the inside of the integral water tank, which is in the bow.

After a couple of hours in the water tank cleaning, sanding, drying and painting, I came out covered from head to toe in bitumen paint, and with a brainful of solvent.

One problem was painting the floor where I'd been standing..

Lining, Ceiling, and the first few pipes...

The walls are lined and the ceiling is finished. Loads of headroom - somehow it seems taller than it did before the ceiling was in!
The lights sit nice and flush, and they need less than an inch of depth to sit in. Bedazzled LED are really helpful with advice for installing LEDs. Don't be tempted to downgrade the wiring thickness because of the low power involved - this has apparently caused problems with BSS checks in the past.
 Bulkheads are in for the bathroom, and the window apertures cut ready for the hardwood frames to go in.
