Boat Works

I’ve been working on the boat, as opportunity arises. One of the bulkheads was collapsing, so I decided to replace it. The only thing holding the old one together, as it turned out, were the screws that went through it to the base of the seats.

Rob and I pulled this out, and then went to fabricate a new one.

We started by picking up some wood, then we cut, sanded, veneered and installed- here’s what it looks like ready to go in:
Bulkhead

Next: Another couple of pieces of wood, to solidly block in a locker. That, however, will have to wait a week, I have to be in Atlanta again this week. I’ll start cutting and sanding today, but wont get those done until I return. She’s getting there, slowly.
