It really does help when you work like mad for a few years always wondering if you are getting it right or going too far. Thanks for the encouragement.

Thanks it was a lot of work and very frustrating at times. We had to keep breaking off and going to do our real work assisting the islands we help out. But at last came The Day and here are the results. BTW it took Meggi exactly 3 weeks to decide she should have done about half of it differently. That's a true female artist for you!

Magic!

Completely not my ideal of aesthetics, but great visuals that will appeal to many.

Great job. Thank for sharing!

About our cabins and fittings

Glad you liked the idea we used the hand made leaded stained glass in several places. I really must photograph the aft cabin as that is the best of the lot and stuffed with ideas. Just need some time and peace to do it. We could use so much stained glass because we were refitting in Bali and the stained glass made to Meggi's designs was actually cheaper than the tempered glass. That said, the stained glass has almost no strength so must be laminated to tempered glass for use on board. Do keep that in mind it is important. All of the wood work you see in our boat was done with recycled wood from old houses and broken up ships. Some of the teak we found is older than Vega. For our fittings we use scrap ships bronze and had them all cast to Meggi's designs by a man who makes musical gongs for the temples in Bali. All together including both sky-lights they cost us less than what was asked for three of the skylight strap hinges from one of the big supply houses.We will be glad to share what we learned along the way if anyone is interested.

Very Nice

Just looking at that boat and the work they do makes me wish I was a youth again and could run off and join them. Very nice boat, and amazing work.
