Boatfit Europe

Some exciting woodwork is being brought to the metaphorical table from the brains behind Boatfit Europe, or Paul as he's more commonly known. 

As mentioned previously the wheelhouse added by unfortunate high altitude balloonist Alan Ritche was never completed and still required doors, rear windows, and even a new roof after being left open to the elements for so long.

Paul's quality of work and attention to detail is the only I've come across so far that both equals and does justice to the original construction by Halvorsen & Gowland.

The decision to fit hinged doors as apposed to sliding is purely aesthetically, and I'm really pleased with the results.

As well as the necessary we're also replacing the rear windows with double glazed units to match the new wheelhouse with additional matching detail around the frames.

More to come soon.
