2465Hrs – Cool Idea?
I’ve pretty much finished cutting out all the plywood for the engine wells, engine boxes, mast tabernacles, mast box etc.etc. And my thoughts are now turning to the deckpod again.
This morning I was out on a shopping trip to Costco with Gail when I spied some big Igloo cool boxes on offer, it was too good an opportunity to pass up particularly as I’ve had it in mind to have such a thing up on deck for quite a while so I bought one!
As I was admiring it this afternoon it struck me that it would be perfect to install it in the deckpod, it’s the right height for a seat so I’m thinking of building a locker in the aft section of the deckpod into which this cool box can fit, there would be additional storage either side of it and I think this athwartships bench seat would be much more usable than the ones on the plans. I’d already planned to move the watch bunk forward so it seems I’ve got a similar idea to Chuck who left a comment last night saying he was doing something similar, thanks Chuck.
One difference though is that I don’t intend to increase the size of the pod at all.
I plan to have a little play with some scrap ply tomorrow to see what I can mock up.
