The good folk at MGM have been working flat out and there is progress on all fronts.

The brass windows and portholes are in place throughout:
The bathroom is also well on its way to completion.
For those interested in such matters, we have opted for a cassette toilet, rather than a pump-out tank. We had a pump-out on our previous boat, then changed to cassette and much preferred it. Although emptying cassettes is not exactly pleasant, lying on top of a tank full of excreta is an even less agreeable thought, and if you get iced in it can be a real pain not being able to reach a pump-out station.

Suffice to say it is going to look amazing!
