Interior Updates - April 2006

I'm closing in on finishing. So finishing is where we are. The galley and head cupboards are installed and trim applied. I intend to have plexiglass sliding doors on both cupboards. To this end I used a polymer plank and cut channels in it slightly wider than the 1/8" plexi I intend to use. It worked great. It helps to have a friend who just happens to have an unused piece of polymer and also the table saw to cut it up with.

Reality always looks better than a photograph. I was attempting to show the grooves which had been cut into the polymer. Getting the measurements was somewhat challenging, but were worth the effort. Having a friend with a very nice table-saw was good too.

Admittedly, the photo (below) is a bit dark, but it shows the progress in the cabin.

The detail here is of the new teak shelf and compass trim. I did the compass trim to hide both the screws, which attach the compass to the cabin, and the electrical wire for the compass light. I think it turned out well. There is evidence of epoxy work which will be painted over.
