Bank Holiday DIY

We have a new entry mat! Well, and floor. Many years ago when our Bella was built, some things didn't turn out as well as they could have done. Pete has changed the water pump three times, two of them after leaks. The water decided to seep between the marine ply base floor and the oak installed at Bella's refit. Over time, this curled the top layer. So we changed that today.

With a special electric saw, the only name Bosch gives it is tool, Pete cut out a swathe of the oak. Then he installed moulding. Then Elizabeth was back to floor laying, this time, thick coir on a solid rubber base. Of course Maxwell had to check out the new mat before it could be cut 😆
