Well the progress may be slow, but it is progress. The kitchen was a cramped area in the middle of the superstructure (Photo)
and although still needing some finishing touches, the new kitchen looks very smart indeed. (Photo).
Access to the lower regions has also been very much improved from the steep companionway at the bow (Photo).
He now has a very elegant spiral staircase amidships. (Photos).
Again, finishing touches still needed but considering Simon bought the staircase (in a dismantled state) while he was still negotiating to purchase the ship, he made a good decision. The companionway will be retained as an emergency exit.
Now, what's next?
