Its not quite the end of the long build road, but when Jenny asked me the other day how was I getting on with certain 'essentials' on the Mystery, like the two pushpit gin seats and the cockpit nibbles table I thought that seeing as it's a nice sunny weekend it would be nice to get the seats treated before fitting them (saves having to clear up spills from the fibreglass). The Teak Wonder range of products are my favourites. For the pushpit seats, as the wood was fresh from the workshop, I used Teak Wonder Dressing & Sealer to maintain the golden colour before installing them on the pushpit, a second coat can be applied when dry usually after one hour and with the conditions on Saturday this is what I did. To bring the cockpit seats and coaming up to scratch its going to be a case of applying Teak Wonder Cleaner, maybe Teak Wonder Brightner if the teak doesn't lighten enough and then the dressing and sealer.
As for a removable cockpit table some twelve years ago when fitting out our Channel 31 we made up a cockpit table that straddled the centre main track, worked well but often got in the way. For the Mystery we went for one of the excellent Lagun yacht tables, the table can be height adjusted, turned, spun around, folded and packed away and with no legs of its own, there is plenty of room to play footsie with the person opposite! The table can be bought in teak effect (Rimini) or white melamine, however please note the teak veneer option as per my images has now been discontinued. Its simple to install and comes with fasteners, backing plate and plastic wedges (see image below) for non vertical surfaces! Deploying the frame is easy as it slides into the mounting bracket, stowing it away after use is just as easy.
Please note that with every complete unit we are giving away a stowage bag worth £45.00, deal or no deal?
