Allie Rose here, a beautiful 1972 Hallberg Rassy
The bathroom has been striped down and rebuilt with IPE wood
. I've attached photos for anyone whose interested in seeing. Note - these photos are prior to the NFM windows that I installed, so it continues to look even better every day! I'll update these photos once the bathroom remodel is completely finished, but first, a few quick questions.
I had 40' of custom made 1/4 round IPE wood
trim made. It was ridiculously priced and totally unnecessary. If I have any extra and anyone would like it, I'm happy to give it away to another broke sailor if you Venmo me the cost of shipping
Anyway - the questions:
1) IPE is VERY hard wood. I'm sure I could screw it in, but I'm also contemplating just using 4200 or some other adhesive
to secure it to the corners. Is that a terrible idea? Should I just find short enough fasteners and screw it in?
2) IPE oil
is VERY hard for me to come by for some reason. Is Teak oil
a reasonable substitute?
3) I've run plumbing
for hot and cold water
to the bathroom already. I have NOT, however, purchased an actual sink/shower head
combo fixture to instal in the sink. As you can see, there is one output spot. Does anyone have a recommendation for what they would install?
My goal is to finish trimming out the bathroom and installing the sink fixture, and thereafter need to figure out how to use the same thru-hull that is use for the sump pump
that drains the shower
pan as the intake for a saltwater spray down hose on the deck
.... That's a project
for another day, and I'll post photos when the time allows. So yeah, for now, just a few questions about trim and fixtures. More questions about the thru hull
and multiway input/output within in the near future. Just wanted to post photos today I guess.
