A bit more done


We hope everyone had a good Easter,I worked,but then,someone has to do it.We got a few pictures from Mick at Kingfisher Narrowboats before the holiday so I thought I would do another short update.Chyandour looks even better with the windows fitted and a holding coat on the cabin.The Epoxy two pack blacking has been finished and she’s looking a treat,it’s hard to imagine that three months ago she was just a piece of steel plate.John and Mick have done the ballast as well so she will be sitting lower in the water now.

Right,here are a few pictures of Chyandours build since January.


The two above are a couple of the first steps in Chyandours build at XR&D.
