Sounds good, who did you source it through in aus, and what sort of thickness?

I wasn't buying it, was working on someone else's boat, but it was a timber supplier near Caboolture.

I'll try to remember to ask. We were using 12mm. But pretty sure 10mm was available too.

Well, at least you didn't pull a monkey and glass up the entrance while you were inside!

Re: Modernizing a Prout Elite 37ft

Holy MonkekS88T, Atoll! Nice work!!

Those be pretty steelie-dans. Doubt I could lift em. Do holes actually sink and that's why they are named as such?

Those are very pretty mushroom tops laying on the bench.

Re: Modernizing a Prout Elite 37ft

bling now installed!
I'm happy with the result,apart from the cover plates for the shroud chain plates on the deck, the slots were cut too long,and will have to make up new ones

aft cabins finished for the moment,untill the toe rail is installed.
will start machining the rubbing strake timber next week

also installed midships deck cleats,and the genoa tracks

oOoooH Progress! YAY for Atoll!

I do hope them chainplays are strong enuf housed, and won't play any. Chain plays mounting always makes me shiver my tail when I look at em.
