I finally installed all of the aft deck mahogany pieces I've been writing about for a couple of months. That's basically a wrap on the complex wood work out there. It turned out really nice...lots better than what we started with!

I've got sliding helm station exterior doors (mostly)!

I still need to figure out the lower door guides, prime and paint the exterior, then install the glass, but the door plan is coming together nicely.

Happy New Year!

It's been a while since I had time to mess around online. My discrimination and wrongful termination suit against my former employer is moving forward, and I've been buried with thousand page affidavits, responses to affidavits, Merit System Protection Board and federal court filings. I also had to do a valve job and get the genset running on my other boat, the one we used to live aboard, in preparation for selling it this year.

Anyway, I posted an article about the aft deck canvas that I had made. It turned out real nice and is a major step toward getting the boat weather proof so we can splash later this year.

Cheers,
Q
