Winter-time interior work

We've been doing a lot of interior details this winter since we returned to a more typical rainy pattern with our weather here. I don't have pictures from all of my recent projects but here's a few things we've been up to. The interior is getting very close to done (or as done as it needs to be). When I wrap up the wheelhouse trim, I'll probably try to post some interior walk through video using a wide angle lens.

Finishing passageway (trim, pantry doors, shelves, etc):

Aft cabin face frames and drawers under bed platform:

Corner cabinet in guest head:

Guest cabin under-bunk storage and mattress:

...and started on trimming out wheelhouse windows:

I'll have more on the wheelhouse interior in the next couple of weeks.

We lost our longtime companion and crew member last night. She got sick about a month ago, and despite our best efforts she went downhill quick in the last week. LC (Little Cat) became part of our family in early 2002, Starting life as a stray, she quickly adapted to life on the water and lived on-board with us for almost 14 years. She logged thousands of miles underway on our old boat (Seabird) and traveled by boat with us as far North as Prince Rupert, British Columbia. She always enjoyed traveling and seeing new places, but also seemed perfectly happy to just find a nice sunny spot to stretch out in, or a lap to lounge on. She kept our boat free of four legged intruders of all sizes and was known to catch and eat the occasional bug that found it's way on board. LC was a good boat cat and she will be missed.
