More Trim and Paint

Been kind of lazy about posting lately... Lots to catch up on:

We painted the galley and forward cabins with the same color as the aft stateroom from the wainscoting up. Looks nice with the wood trim we've been slowly adding. I don't have any shots of the work in progress, but you can see the finish in some of these pics. Did a lot of work in the bow including painting and finishing the built in shelving in the forepeak and just behind the watertight door. I lined these shelves with some leftover carpet from the aft cabin, which should help keep things from banging around when we're underway. Also framed out the doorways for the forward cabin and the forward head. I'm currently working on the last batch of face frames. The frames for the dinette drawers are now done, so that leaves just a few more to do. Then I will have one more batch of drawers/door fronts to put together and install to wrap up all of the interior cabinets/storage. Our neighbor Anton built us a very nice door for the aft cabin head. It's a match for the two doors we already had on hand from our old boat, which are both going forward- one for the guest cabin, one for the guest head. In the aft cabin, we covered the last remaining plywood (on the tops to the nightstands and cabinets) with a grey laminate. This cabin is looking about 90% finished now. Here's a bunch of pictures:

  1. Nice work!....are you starting to think about the sailing rig now or is that still something for the more distant future?

    1. Thank Michael. I was going to get the rig designed built and installed this summer, but have gotten side-tracked by a lot of interior finish work. I do still hope to at least get the aft mast fabricated and installed before the end of the year.

  2. I just wanted to say that you have done an incredible job on your boat. I read the entire blog and it has been an inspiration for me in my own boat build.

    You truly deserve the rewards of your efforts with this fine piece of work.
