We felt that over the summer months the toilet compartment was looking rather down at heel so Phil has made it a priority to refit it over the winter period.
We had a shower unit that we felt was totally unnecessary and took up too much space. We’ve opted for a bespoke vanity unit, hardwood ply lining and Phil put his joinery skills to the test making iroko cupboard doors and brass handles.
We’ve also installed a new fresh water supply with an inset stainless steel sink. This will be much more useful for the usual ablutions as we tend to use the posh showers in the various marinas we visit.

The Refit of Toilet Compartment
This is the progress to date, as you can see we’ve replaced the shower unit with a storage unit and sink. We never used the shower anyway so it was a real waste of space. We prefer to use the showers in the marina’s and sailing clubs.
Phil is doing all of the work himself and as he’s working all week he only has the weekends to get anything done on the boat.
Check back soon to see it completely finished.
