This gave me good oppertunity to do the most important job in readiness for Christmas. Rack off the Sloe Gin! 6 full bottles and 2 bottles of Sloe Vodka. Never made Sloe Vodka before so looking forward to sampling that.
When Ian returned with the partition board both of us kept fingers crossed that we could get it through the back cabin door and into the boat. We needn't have worried because it went in with ease but getting it into the bathroom was a different matter. The usual straight walls and high ceilings of a house is non excistant in a boat, what with the sloping roofline and tumble on the walls. With our ceiling height being a shade under 6' at it's highest point, we struggled to get it upright and failed miserably. Then we took it into the galley and had better success in raising it up. Maneuvering towards the bathroom we found that, because of the larder cupboard being in the middle of the boat, we couldn't get enough height to slide it under the beading on the roof line. So Ian stripped the bottom molding from the partition and with a lot of gentle nudging and pulling, got it past the beading and through the bathroom door and into place. Such a relief and now we know the partition went in, the shower door should be a doodle being that bit smaller.....height wise. The plumbing will be next followed by the shelves. Ian is hoping to get that finished tonight. Then if all goes well, the vinyl will be stuck on tomorrow. We may finally see the beginning of a light at the end of the tunnel.
