This series of photographs are of a semi displacement Coastworker 25 being built by Arthur in North Queensland, Australia. Living at  latiude18 degrees south, shelter from the searing sun is a necessity, hence the extended cabin. This also works in well with accommodation comfort on Arthur's plans of extended fishing trips on the outer reefs.

 

The neatness of Arthur's work is quite apparent in this shot.
