Has finally come to a halt. When It was not cold and nasty out, I was working. I begin to think my boss looks at the weather forecast before deciding what schedule to put me on. When I was working, it was nice and warm, when it was nasty, I was off.
So, after getting a couple of days of nice weather, I finally got the cockpit boxed in. I still need to cut out the opening between the cabin and watertank area for a louvered hatch (It’s in the post) it is all epoxied into place and waiting some sanding and painting before it becomes an integrale piece of Flirt.
As always, when I fabricate something, it starts with a sheet of foam board:
From there comes the plywood that is ready to fit into place with some minor shaving and sanding:
And once it is all shaped to fit, it gets epoxied into place:
And finally Filleted and encased in epoxy to keep he rot at bay.
Soon I will be able to add some Carbon to strengthen it up, but before that I need to cut the access hole for this nice bit of teak:
It’s a shame most people will never see it, the vent will be hidden behind the toilet, but I will know it is there.
