Cocks Away!!

After spending the morning sanding the floors back getting rid of the splatters of epoxy thought i'd better make a stand about where and what the galley will be, i have decided on placing the sink and drainer nearest the companionway.

Then i've got the icebox/fridge freezer next then cooker then to the main bulkhead storage units and nav area, so after i'd looked to the heavens for answers i got the 50mm hole saw out and made provision for the engine inlet and sink outlet.

Initially i was concerned about placing two seacocks either side of the keel stub be it quite a way back aft but never the less thought after i'd done the deed it wasn't wise. 

That was until i saw the glass cores from each hole: Jesus i know i said Westerly' were overbuilt but this is crazy as i know how thin the hull is/was around the cockpit outlets which is only a foot or so back and i know i've added to the layup but these cores are about 15mm thick!

Still the boat now has two more slinky-looking racing seacocks which i'll glass in tomorrow onto the hull, i realised i need one more for the sink in the heads so will be getting that sorted as soon as some money makes itself available to me.
