Plugging away

Hello, team!

Once again, it’s been too long since I provided an update.  I do apologize.  The knee staged a reasonably quick recovery and I’ve been hard at work on a number of boat projects.  Here’s a quick recap.

The console and bait tank are painted.

The wiring for the lights and such in the console is all run, and the VHF antenna is installed.

The helm pod is finished and installed on the console.

Openings have been cut for the plotter and the gauges.

The breaker panel is fabbed.  This was done by CNC engraving the legend into white acrylic, filling it with colored resin and then sanding it smooth.

The switch panels are nearly done.  Each one requires about 50 hours of CNC machining, and frankly I’m only marginally happy with how they’re coming out.  But at this point it is what it is.

I’ve got working prototypes of the circuit boards that will allow the neat two-color LED buttons to illuminate correctly and drive the relays for the circuits they control.

The inwales are installed and glassed.  We’re now prepping the inwale/deck system for paint.

The 8/4 teak boards I bought have been ripped into decking battens.

The fuel tank is installed and plumbed, and the tank well cover is installed.

The motor is installed and rigged.

The stainless motorwell cap is done and polished.

The teak seating surface is built and has a couple of initial coats of finish on it.

Honestly I’d love to provide narrative on all this, but it would take forever.  I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
