And with sealed bearings, axles intact, should be easy to come up with a nice easy design for easy removal, and storage whilst on the fish.

With a bit of help from the dremel, I was able to get the 2 piece cowling to fit nicely, as it was sourced thru Precision Marine, but not thru one supplier. Match up nicely now..

Over the dunes swinging a cutlass and pointing the dirk.

I'm waiting for the seat cushions.

Crushed velvet in blue or crimson..... leather with a heavy gold stitch embossed 'Captain' across the length.... or ya gunna steal the cushions from the lounge.

Give us a clue at least Captain.

Well folks, punt has undergone a etch primer, both inside and out. And had one coat of Hammer-tone grey on the outside. Now its starting to look like a boat!!
It'll get a hammer-tone coat inside next, and a nice fat-coat outside to finish it off. Then its onto the casting deck and floor carpeting!
