Fellow boatbuilders will know the feeling. When you have SO much to do and don’t know where to start. This was the feeling on the boat build this weekend.
The cover photo is of my little nephew inspecting the bathroom. He was cute as a button as he started checking out all of the nooks and crannies.
With a focus on internal fitout, do we concentrate on bedrooms, bathrooms, or the galley? Well, we did a little bit of everything.
In the bedrooms, Brad finished the cupboards upon the bed. He installed panels, sanded them, and they are now ready for upholstery.
In the lounge room, we think, we have picked out the material. Well, we are down to three options.
In the bathroom, we started testing the installation of panels.
In the services, we gave the water pump its first crank. And it is SO quiet!
First cab off the rank is a photo of samples. We are trying to work out what colour and texture to trim the lounge in. Luckily, dad is an upholsterer – so we have lots of options.
We have decided on materials for the bedroom, which is a white/creme with silver accent
I busied myself with installed some more lights. We have managed to kit out almost half the boats internals in LeD lights.
Meanwhile Brad was busy installing an “electronics / charging” box in the bedrooms. We needed a place to charge the ipad and iPhone. We put one in our bedroom, and it turns out that mum loves it and wants the same in her bedroom.
Last, but not least, we have photos of the test installation of panels in the bathroom. With only a very small effort of a few hours, we got an idea of the finish of the bathroom. How exciting!
