So at 23-12-2012 installing the inside woodwork is in progress and pics follow:-
First job was the battery compartment, batteries have been on the cabin roof since I temp wired them up after coming off the reef. This compartment was never finished in 1994 refit, but now it is.
|after 19 years its painted out inside|
|After batteries installed with all new cables, nav station reinstalled|
|then fwd facing partition could be refitted|
|to enable live aboard status, the Bog had to be recommissioned|
|Then the hull side in way of the head compartment was painted out|
And the job just finished was to fit the aft head, oak paneling partition. This partition was smashed during the two days on the reef, assembled it is to big to remove from the boat, but during the time ashore, I took it all to pieces, reassembled and glued it all up again, then about 4 coats of varnish to finish it. This was all done inside the boat, and it was a pain trying to move it about the whole time as the other work to the hull was being done. But all worth the effort now.
I move back on board today, so I do not know yet if I can get Internet on the dock, if not it may be a while, or till after Xmas and New Year before the next post.
Feeling a bit more relaxed I went to the local bar at Bottoms Up (Carigas) and attended their
'End of the World' party on the 21st. They had it advertised as... 6-30pm until the end of the world!
I lasted till they got fed up waiting at 01-30hrs on 22nd and closed! giggle giggle.
All for now dear readers. MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR to ALL
