Project Log:  Sunday, April 22, 2012

There was a small area of exposed hull outboard of the galley, in the area where the plate storage rack would go.  Earlier test-fitting of the rack indicated a need to cover the painted hull here, as it stood out too coldly.  To this end, I purchased some liner fabric, and with trim work wrapping up in the galley, it seemed a good time to install it.

I made a paper pattern of the inside of the locker, then transferred it to the fabric and cut it out before gluing it in place with spray adhesive.  Most of this would be hidden from view regardless, but the fabric would be nicer to look at than the painted fiberglass.


The base of the dinette required outside corner trim to cover the edges and end grain of the substructure.  From some 1-1/2" square blanks of solid cherry, I milled L-shaped pieces to cover the corners as needed, and installed them with glue.  Meanwhile, I milled several new lengths of quarter round molding and cut and fit pieces around the remainder of the dinette base and galley cabinet as needed.  This brought these areas to a level of completion where I could begin to think about varnish base coats.



At the end of the day, I masked off the pilothouse side bulkheads and windows and applied a coat of satin varnish to these areas.
