731.5Hrs – Cold n’Slow
Paradoxically there was still a bit of daylight left when I got to the at 6 tonight, enough to think that maybe the winter is ebbing, trouble is we are having one of the coldest weeks of the winter so far. Minus 5-8 overnight and not much above in the day. Mild by some standards but not here and it’s enough to slow things down. I did manage to finish gluing the No8 bulkheads though and then turned my mind to what’s next. It started to dawn on me that I have gotten a bit ahead of myself talking about upper bulkheads. Before I get to them I have all the bunks/seats and locker floors to sort out, not to mention more filleting and finishing the hullside stringers that I haven’t yet glued in place. Even more importantly I need to decide on the cabin layouts. There are a number of options as you can see below. I am probably going for the port hull as shown and a mix of options in the starboard hull. Certainly I’m going for the double berth with en-suite shower and heads and probably a single berth aft, although this will be primarily for stowage. The forward cabin I intend to turn into a bosuns locker/workshop area but with a second heads for use by guests. I shall ponder over the next few days then make a plan!
