Romanes eunt domus

So, having cut the hole in the deck and welded in a lip, we've been waiting for Brian to have chance to build the actual skylight to fit into the hole.

A few days ago he delivered the skylight, which he'd built offsite in the workshop,

and then a couple of days later returned to, with Lorna's help, weld it in place over the hole.

They started by cutting off what were probably the old sockets for pegs for securing a tarp over the roof.

And then Lorna ground down the paint from the area of wall that would be welded, and they put the skylight in position.


It was at this point that they discovered that although it was flat at the base, the wall had a slight bow in it, which meant that although the skylight fitted the hole in the deck perfectly it didn't butt up to the wall properly.

They then spent most of the day cutting, repositioning, trimming and fiddling,



and eventually all the hard work paid off and the skylight was welded in securely and watertightly. We are SO pleased with the result, the shape and the big, heavy, industrial styling works really well with the front deck, and when we get glass in there it's going to let so much light into the room. The open-able panel also provides a much better secondary fire escape exit than we had before. It's been a LONG time in the planning but it was totally worth it.

It looks great, functional yet ultra stylish, well done!

s looking great! I love the design and I can't wait to see the finished article... We had a similar WHOA moment this weekend when I cleared a bunch of crap off our front hatch and opened the big, heavy hatch for the first time since we've owned the boat. And it's INCREDIBLE how much light was down there! We're both really looking forward to getting it replaced with glass when our bedroom's going to be under it.

Hi
I've been following your blog as I'm considering making the great move to the water.
Anyway, I saw this on eBay and thought of you; (item no. 220633951830). It's a bunch of celotex up the river in Richmond and currently bidding at 1p! I'm sure you could find a use for it ;)

I was hoping to ask some questions. Rather than post a whole load of stuff here is there any way to contact you directly?
