Part 7: install glass and keel
We installed a hatch for the forepeak (a box for the anchor line) - on the first slide. The rest of the slides show the preparation of the portholes for the installation of glasses, and the entrance to the cabin - for the installation of a cap (a hatch that slides from above from the entrance)
Maxim finished making the interior lining for the windows and installed one to show how they would look.
Installed glass in the portholes.
Installed kaplyuk and made a front hatch with glass.
Furniture is being installed. I hope I won't have to take it off again, like last year, when the keel beam was changed (it will still have to).
I ordered a stainless steel worker to make such a structure - it is the attachment point for a large 120 W solar array, and also, it will probably be the attachment point for the awning.
Installed kingstones - holes for draining from the toilet and washbasin.
Here you need to think about how best to install the transom board for the motor
Just another photo
