I am grateful for my Honourable Moderator Colleague for alleviating my / our distress by removing the kitchen block. Not sure if the bacon sandwich (spam) version is still there. I have to add that when we were under attack, a long time ago, I 'trolled' the contact number with my home fax machine (a 1990's household staple).

The aluminium sheets came back from Forgetec - with extra sheet / offcuts that are useful (the excuse for all hoarders). The diagram shows PM4 and PM3 difrerences. I had alluded to the corrosion and holes drilled, with alacrity (no, not that one..), so I have glued the outer 'skin' onto both front and rear seats.

Repair panels are not to the edges: I'd not wanted a hard edge, or the sides to butt up against the support bracket holding the seat to the side of the boat.

Often the remote control fitting is missing on these boats - this had a welded box affair with 2 14mm nuts and bolts fastening it to the outside of the hull! My local blacksmith is to make it up / bend it to shape, from No4's pattern. Here are the basic dimensions..

Finally had a decent finish on the paint - normally have Redtree foam brushes in stock, but resorted to buying some horrible rubbish during lockdown. What a waste of time (and paint). The seats and transom are on their 4th coat of varnish - taking advantage of some warm weather for a change.

Do you fold the aluminum yourself or use a shop? Either way, neat

Have a metalwork / blacksmith shop in the village. Sourced and cut all the ali I needed for the other jobs to size. For this, I emailed him pics and dimensions and he did the angles by eye.
