The Cockpit

We’re rather impressed with the amount of work that has gone into manufacturing the lockers in Waiouru’s cockpit.

Our expectation was the locker would be a simple ”bin” design with a lift up lid.  As you can see in both photo’s the actual locker construction is far more sophisticated.  The above photo is the general storage locker whilst the next photo is the starboard gas locker.

Our specification requires all the external lockers and hatches to be secured by individual locking mechanisms operated from within the shell of the boat.  We didn’t want hasps, staples and padlocks.

Are you sure that your gas locker complies with the Boat Safety Scheme section 7.2.1/R and ISO10239

To be honest; I would not know. We are relying on the expertise of the shell builder, boat builder and our surveyor. All have either constructed or viewed the shell.
