1846Hrs- Room With A Loo
A fun session today playing around in the toilet shower compartment. First job was to finish off the steps, I made the #3 step in exactly the same way as yesterday and got that glued in and levelled up, then I mixed up a batch of thickened epoxy so that I could fillet around the two steps I fitted yesterday. Once I’d done that I thought I’d continue with my layout experiments by making a mockup vanity unit out of hardboard and seeing if the seating idea I came up with yesterday would work. Given that there is only really one place that the sink and vanity unit can go I did that first, dropping in the sink and holding everything in place with blobs of hot melt glue (this is a great way of putting things together temporarily).
Once I’d got the unit roughly at the right height and levelled up I knocked together a rough version of the athwart-ships seat that I’d thought about yesterday. It’ll be hinged on one side so that it can be dropped into position for use whilst showering and washing or lifted up and fastened against the hullside when access to the loo and sail locker is needed. For it to be used in any kind of seaway it will need some sort of backrest but a thick piece of rope would probably suffice. I think this layout works really well but I’ll see what it looks like with fresh eyes tomorrow.
