Marinedeck 6mm cork has been used to resist wear from the two anchor chains. The forward anchor raising foot switch is mounted in the centre of the 2mm stainless scratch plate. Another foot switch will be located near the winch for the capstan.
This photo shows the modifications to the underside of the Nacelle. The 2 inspections hatches gain access to the 2 forward compartments.
