📝 Window fitment and fettling.

The windows of the Shannon are a main feature of the superstructure. They have to sit flush, and unlike other lifeboats there is no overlapping outer frame to conceal any small gaps. Each window has an inner and outer black surround. Hopefully my pictures will show how I solved 2 problems.
1. Gaps between windows and openings.
2. The supplied windows being of the wrong thickness material. The recess being 1.5mm material supplied 2mm.
