We left him to it while we popped out and unloaded the 2cubic meters of logs we had delivered last night, into the log store.
It's such a relief to get it done and know now that its safe and sound! Here's how the pipe work was looking before:
(note the joins and the lack of support for the pipe!)
One of the welded joints that are a no-no on the boat!:
The pipe work along the cabin length also wasn't clipped adequately enough, so Drew sorted that also - did a really good job and it looks really smart now. Here's the pipe work to the hob now:
Definitely looks a lot more professional!
We also had to have the hob replaced as that was leaking slightly. To be honest it was due out anyway, it was really looking shabby:
The aluminium surround was bad was badly scratched and it just looked quite dated too. The fact is was leaking was also a massive problem! Luckily we had the hob from Ikea originally and they had a similar two burner hob, just more updated from when we first bought ours over 2 years ago.
The new hob has a glass surround and is nearly flush with the worktop and looks really modern, smart and clean:
The only down side is that its another piece of glass to keep clean :)
Drew had finished up pretty much just after lunch, so it was a case of a clean up again. It wasn't too bad to be honest, no dust or anything, mostly just putting things back and moving the chairs in the saloon back into place.
Not a lot else happened today as that really took up most of the day . Big relief! Can relax now!
