With the shell completed for the Kingsley we are taking to Crick, it was time to apply the sprayfoam insulation. This is a minimum of 38mm thick and is a crucial part of the build process. Without this sprayfoam the boat would be very cold in the winter and condensation would also form. This condensation would then lead to more problems, possibly even the lining panels going black if left long enough! We are due to install the wiring into this complex boat within the next week and lining the boat and fitting bulkheads will follow.
All the details have been finalised now and orders have been placed with the relevant suppliers, most importantly for the propulsion system. This is going to be a system very similar to the one we fitted on our eco-boat Tulak but with a different motor – more details will be revealed in future blogs!
This 70ft x 12ft Kingsley is going to be a reverse layout, so the master bedroom will be up at the front of the boat, the galley towards the rear and the outside seating will be above the rear cabin, accessible from steps alongside the automatically collapsing wheelhouse.
We are taking booking for Crick 2018 and if you would like to view this boat then please get in touch and we can arrange a time – alternatively if you pop and see us at Crick we will do our best to get you on board.
