Re: Future Brown Water Cruiser: 1969 Chris Craft Roamer 46 Refit

Well, things were going along pretty good (albeit slower than I'd hoped) when I discovered a problem left behind by ol' Mr. Good-but-slow, the not very competent woodworker I hired for a while back in 2012. I ended up spending a weekend fixing yet another of his screw-ups, and in the process figured out the path forward to finishing the V-berth cabinetry...which involves having to finish a storage cabinet in the galley that I last touched 16 months ago!

It's all progress, so it's all good, but I do wish things went smoother and faster.

I got back into the V-berth and wrapped up the final installation on several mahogany panels. It's looking pretty good!

I got the last of the panels cut for the HVAC cabinet in the V-berth, then glued and screwed the cabinet top in place. That's good timing, since Flagship Marine called to say the air conditioners are just about ready to be shipped. The project isn't moving along as fast as I'd like, but it's getting there.

I got to work on the last cabinet in the V-berth. It's turning out pretty good, but along the way I realized I have to finish a storage cabinet in the galley and cut some of the veneer panels for the galley bulkhead before I can wrap up the V-berth. I suppose it's better to figure that out now than later, when I'd have to backtrack.
