Here you can see that the grab rail has been formed and sits higher than the curved roof. The front bulk head will be added in Sheffield along with the bow rubbing strakes. It is interesting that the full sheet of the base plate is still attached and has not been cut away. I am assuming this is for extra strength whilst she is moved around and across the country. The diagonals that you can see inside the cabin are also kept on for support and to keep the structure square until the front bulk head is welded into position.
On 23rd March she made the journey across the Pennines to Sheffield to Jonathan's yard where we hope to see her soon.
