6 weeks to 'D' day (well launch day!)

We have a date for the launch, it will be the 6th June and we have been today to see the progress.  The painting is coming along and has really made a difference to how the boat looks, gone is the red primer replaced with the black and grey.  The roof is finished and has a non-slip coating and Mark was painting the sides whilst we were visiting.  Neil has made the rear steps, which are removable so we can get into the cupboards, we asked for solid steps for two reasons, they give us extra storage and also our dog (Ben) can easily get up them (hopefully).  He has also made the bathroom doors, which look great, the cupboard above the bed and the plate rack which Neil has made from a picture that we took on the hire boat we had on the Mons & Brec last year as we thought it was a really good idea.  Again we are really pleased with the quality of the work, they all look really good.  Ali has been busy giving the woodwork a final coat, and the linings of the doors and hatches, these look great as well.   Everything is all coming together now, once the sides are painted the ports can go in and the houdinis will be going in next week. 

Hopefully everything will be nearly finished for the Beacon Boats Open Weekend.  If you are looking for a new boat and would like to view Triskaideka please contact Ali or Neil on Tel. 07949 984656 Email  They won't be at Crick show this year, so you may arrange to visit, view and meet them over the May bank holiday, 27th-30th.  They have recently had a build slot delayed and put back, due to a future customers personal circumstances. This means there is currently an empty build slot available next year (2012).

  1. It's all looking fantastic. It is good to see the additional personal touches. The exciting bit is that the time is getting closer and closer.

  2. It is but also we wish it was ready now!
