Working on the Pilothouse

Filed under: Building - Cabin — tomlarkin @ 6:51 am

I’ve spent the last few weekends finishing the pilothouse top and the new sliding door framework. It’s about ready to be primed and painted. At the same time, I added a new Port-side scupper because water pooled a bit when I washed the cabin. I’d hoped it would all run back to the stern scuppers, but it’s about 3/8 of an inch lower at that point.  It looks just like the Starboard scupper, only a few feet further aft.  I also cut openings for vents into the lockers fore and aft.  Other than filling and finish sanding, I’m approaching completion on the outside of the cabin.  I really want to get this finished and start working inside the cabin!

I got a Fein Multimaster for Yule, and I’ve been using it heavily, especially for sanding inside corners where nothing else worked well. It’s a great (and expensive) tool – thanks Meryll!
