We visited this project recently, the owner has been busy working on some of the fiddly time-consuming jobs like making his own integral fuel tanks, installing the composite hatch gutters and fitting his holding tanks to name just a few. They say that 'the devil is in the detail' and this is usually true although it is what makes the difference at the end.
All plumbing and electrical routing has already been installed and planned out. The builder has also fitted his daggerboard cases and finished most of the cockpit fit-out. Part of the custom design done for him was a stylish cabinet across the aft saloon bulkhead with moulded covers above this to hide the steering gear and instrumentation from the helm station directly behind. Below the helm station is where the genset will be housed and all access hatches/lockers into this area have been fitted with drainage gutters. All service routing has also been allowed for in this area.
