The electrics are under way; it’s been a big task looming as Aaron has decided to continue the tradition of the project by tackling the planning, wiring and connections himself, to then have them signed off by an Electrician. The timescale for this has always been a big question mark.
The conduit is laid and the wires are running throughout, although even this wasn’t plain sailing as the wires refused to run through attached to a pre-threaded rope, so there was lots of opening up the conduit to help ease them through. Aaron has been back in the workshop making housing boxes for the switch board (which sits next to the chart table) and for the plotter (which will sit at the helm). The compass and instruments are in position in the cockpit and inside we have red/white lights throughout and angled reading lamps in the bunks and saloon.
