Gas locker changes

In the photo above you can see where Joe as changed the fixings for the gas locker top/seat.  The gas locker height is to be increased by 5.25 inches not the 2.75inches I originally posted.

 Barry (welder) has measured and cut the steel and is welding it in place - room is limited so I was banned from suspending myself above the deck to get the 'action shots' - "bog off" was the term I think....
Locker extension in place and awaiting the finishing touches from Joe, filler and paint.

It must be much easier changing cylinders there than through Bow lockers, I wondered how you were going to make a bow locker bigger.
How is the locker vented, do you have a lover in the outside skin?
Sorry about not doing immediate recognition the other day, You could have been standing with a shot gun as I wouldn't have known with that sun behind you. Did you see the crows and the buzzard just below the lock?

Hi Brian
The locker is vented to the outside, Caxton being a reverse layout it made sense to put the gas at the stern. We didn't see the crows or buzzard, was there a punch-up going on then?
