getting those "little jobs" done

Some of you might remember a coupleof years ago I was worrying about the state of the sliding hatch on Shapfell and I asked if anyone else had ever removed one.I couldn't work out how you could get the long slide out from under the hatch so I kept on putting it off and putting it off. Last week I got the tools out and dived in at the deep end.First I slid the hatch closed and unscrewed the visible screws (The most fwd one was actually a long bolt with the nuts inside the crockery cabinet)That…See More

"Thanks Paul. Yes, very fortunate that over her 41 years she hasn't had to suffer any "improvements". No real history as yet. Lovely site!"

just by way of an update

Hi fellow boaters, I haven't posted for a while having had probably the worst 9 month of my life with both of my adult children my Brother and my Dad being ill.

looking for original parts

I'm new to this forum and I really want to find some special bits for my boat. The gentleman who sold me the boat unfortunately done away with a couple of bits which i would love to replace. this includes the sides that make the cofffee table and double bed complete. There is now a fridge in place where one of the sides use to be but it is short enough to fit under the coffee table points. If anyone can advise me then this would be fab!

Best Jacqui x

Anyway there will be lots of work to do when I do get on board, the remodelling may have to wait but paintwork will be necessary as will routine maintenance. Thankfully the air cooled engine can be neglected a…
