Forward Bulkhead panelling and More Shelving
Moving forward... The next big job on the interior will be roughing out the guest cabin which is forward on the starboard side. The cabin will have a raised bunk with storage underneath and a hanging locker forward. This has basically been a storage room for tools, materials, and junk since we started finishing out the interior. The first step to doing any work in this space was to find somewhere to put all this stuff and do some general clean-up. With that in mind, I spent the weekend framing up and panelling the forward bulkhead around the watertight door that leads to the forepeak storage area. With this done, I was able to install some shelves and make use of the big storage area that is on the port side behind the watertight door. This is another area with lots of compound angles and strange shapes, so I dug into my stash of cardboard and made templates for everything. As you can see, I've already made full use of the space to store all our stuff that was in the guest cabin. This will hopefully get thinned out as we use up all these parts and supplies finishing the interior fit-out.
