Here is Caxton's foredeck in its first coat of many colours, oops,.. Grey. You can see that there is no conventional hatch cover on the deck but rather doors from the well deck into the bow locker.
This is because the gas bottles/locker will be at the back of the boat.
I am off to Essex this morning to see my family and a new edition, Ramsay, an eight week old Cocker Spaniel puppy! I am chief puppy sitter tonight as my brother Bob and family will be attending a concert at the Cliffes Pavillion in Westcliffe-on-Sea. Photo's of Ramsay at the weekend.
It seems ironic that I am celebrating the arrival of what will be a much loved pet whilst John of Marmaduke is posting today about the death of much love family pet...
