The Journey to Bluewater boats open weekend was different with the slip roads off junction 12 on the M40 both closed, as well as the b road, so we took a different route. We arrived just past 10 and were a little surprised to see so many people already in attendance.
On Tuesday the granite had been fitted and on Friday some of the upholstery too, we couldn't wait to see what it looked like so hot footed it onto our boat, wow, we love it! especially the blue flecks in the granite that shine out so brightly with the light.

I took some time out and sat on the dinette seat taking it all in, while Martin was showing a couple around, sorry I didn't catch your names but it was very nice to meet you both and to hear your lovely comments about our boat.
The paintwork is also done now, with a clear coat over the top, hopefully this will protect the paintwork and its colour for a good while, the bow flashes have also been completed.
We have chosen to have porthole bungs and these had been delivered on Friday too, I think the window facing part of the covers look great with the blue paintwork on the boat, I really didn't think it would be so similar (I had hoped it would though)

We will be back again on Tuesday to talk to the sign writer about options for placement of our boats name, this is very important to us and has to be right.
There's also a lot of work still to be done so we think the launch date will be put back a little, better that than a rush to get something done for a date we think.
