The flat area is where things like the calorifier (hot water tank) and batteries will be positioned. The flat upright (we think) is the front face of the fuel tank. This tank will go to the rear of the stern around the weedhatch. On Tyler Wilson boats access to the weedhatch is not through the engine bay, as it is on may boats, but it is kept seperate. This means that if you don't secure the lid to the weedhatch properly then you won't flood your boat when the prop gets going. The weedhatch gives you access to the propellor so that if anything has fouled on it (carpets, plastic bags, coats, rope, occasionally weeds) you can clear it.
There is a tube right at the rear of the stern, this is where the rudder post will go down through the stern and attach to the rudder.

The inside shape of the bow can be seen with the sides curving in along with the baseplate curving up.

Along with receiving these photos today, we have had conversations with Julia regarding the shape of the front lockers. As we are having a Trad bow our bow thruster will be positioned under the well deck, so access to it will be through the floor of the deck. The battery will be housed in one of the lockers.
The positions of the windows needed to be confirmed before the apertures could be cut. We have my original drawings and I hadn't written the dimensions between the windows on the plans. So this morning I spent sometime measuring the original drawings, double checking and emailing the details to Julia. Jonathan does have copies of the plans, but as they have been scanned and printed out they may have been distorted in the process. Their positions have had a lot of consideration with relation to built in furniture, so an approximation wouldn't look right. So best measure twice and cut once.
