Hold it

Work has moved on in creating Caxton's new hold and above is the start of the deck hatch that will give us access to the hold which measures approximately 7' by 2' by 5' some 70 cubic feet to fill up!

Here is the new deck in place.

Barry busy fabricating the new deck.

Above the rubbing strakes on the new hull side have been tacked.

It's looking VERY good! Lucky Duck has a HUGE front hold (8' or so by 6'10" by about 18") and it's a very useful feature of the boat, in fact it was one of the main features that had us buy it! Camping gear, spare parts, winter clothing (sealed in boxes with silica gel to absorb moisture) and, probably next winter, coal, all disappear into it and there's STILL loads of space left!

I throughly approve of Caxton's stretch, and I'm sure you'll find it very useful!

Thank you James. I don't imagine it will take us long to fill it in the winter what with coal and wood etc. I am really looking forward to the additional living space it will provide us with!
