    then cut up some teak doors that had been donated as they were way too big, and made them again in the correct size...

    and the next day i cut up the other half and made that too.





    then onto the remaining partition up fwd, not structural so i can't really call it a bulkhead





    I got sick of falling in the bilge, so i proceeded to make some sole boards

    another update burst, can't have Jim making all the progress....

    so I painted the inside of the stove area and made the last of the water tank supports, then bent in the ply for the stove area and finished the bench top.





    then moved my attention to the stb side and finished off that area, and fitted the sink and the "folly"

    the first layer was a grooved 12mm, so as the crew is "burly" i added a 6mm overlay on top, then scribed and glued down the front hatch





    and varnished the rest of the interior... what a mess







    and fitted the new alternator.....



    Thats it for now, as always, updates on www.my-girl.co.nz

    Ooowwwwwww,...... So pretty!

    when I saw the first pictures of you laying the ply I thought to myself ' ohh,.. you could have marked the underside and prepainted,... then that is exactly what you did up forward.
    She is going to be stunning. Thanks for the update.

    Sheesh, all THAT??? As I was scrolling through pictures I expected to see just the primer. Oh no, there's also the undercoat. Oh, and a topcoat. Make that two. And by the way, a bit of varnish here and there. Oh, why don't we continue with the remaining ply? Not to mention the alternator. Amazing work, at light speed!

    Sorry to hear that. I hope nothing that can't be handled from the bottom side.
