Whatever you do make sure and have 24 cubic inches of ducting!

There are two 4" ducts coming off the MSI plenum that I bought at Flagship Marine.

With the ducts, wiring, and plumbing installed, the last step was to install the final mahogany panels in the V-berth. I have to say...I think they turned out pretty good!

Thanks ZH!

I got the wiring and plugs in the V-berth cubby cabinet installed, so that section of the boat is close to being done. There's one more coat of ICA clear coat to be sprayed, and the headliner has to be installed. But all of the woodwork there is done. Booyah

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

I was getting sick of spending every single weekend in the boatyard, so I took the Labor Day weekend off and spent time on other hobbies of mine. It turns out that many of the same skills and abilities used in cabinetmaking also come in handy gunsmithing!

Anyway, after a long weekend away I got busy in the aft stateroom laundry closet next, which had the benefit of being lower in the boat and, therefore, much cooler while summer winds down. I did some woodworking, then installed 8/4 cable to a breaker sub-panel that will power the big appliances back here--the washer, dryer, and AC unit.

I got the laundry closet ceiling panel fitted and the backside insulated. There was a bit of a hitch along the way, but everything turned out OK.

This is coming along nicely!

After making the box for the dryer vent that will fit into the back wall, I mixed up some white-tinted epoxy and coated the visible surfaces. They turned out pretty good!
