I’m here again folks!
My turn to laundry sit and catch up on emails etc.
We’ve had a productive day today anyway, going into town some 12 miles away to get another new cable for your truly’s laptop (to be tested later), and a few other bits and pieces that Hubby wanted to finish his hat for the boat.
Anyone who has stayed in a caravan or boat will know the problems of condensation.
Our boat is aluminium, and so possibly worse than most for accumulating moisture where we don’t want it. We have a skylight/escape hatch in the kitchen area which is single glass in a metal frame. Perfect for getting showered on in the mornings sometimes!
Hubs came up with the solution of making a cover for the skylight to reduce the problem.
He’s done a fine job, and just needed to trim ‘the hat’ to fit.
The roof on the boat is rounded, so obviously having square flat edges on the cover meant it didn’t sit flush. Today, we purchased a saw like hand tool designed for cutting curves on such things, as the Jig Saw was one of the items given away in The Great Sort Out.
I can’t abide mess, and mess in a confined space frustrates and angers me, so it made perfect sense for me to do the laundry whilst Hubby did his whittling!
We intend to line the cover with bubble wrap for insulation, and in the winter months, it will sit over the skylight and thus reduce condensation. In the summer, it will simply be moved along the roof a little and sit there (having been painted the same colour as the boat) , hopefully looking like a permanent feature.
It will also double up as a perch for Fred.
