Sea Knight - Happy New Year

By Osangar - Posted on 20 January 2014

Happy 2014 everyone!  I took November and December off, except to tear down the temporary structure I had built over my parking spot.  It is now January 2014 and I am ready to get back at her and see if I can finish her off in time for the summer.

Outside Covered

After I took my structure down I covered her up with a new heavy duty tarp.  It helps keep it warm and dry inside while I am working on the interior of the cabin, with the help of a little portable heater. Which you can see here in my empty cabin.

Repurposing one of the old frame pieces I had messed up at the very beginning of this project, I put in the cross piece for the berth frame at frame #5.  The original plans called for another cross piece at frame #4 but I am going to try and put a small dinette in between the cabinets and frame #5 that can fold down into the berth.

Installed the first cabinet which will be storage and a sink.  At this time I don't think I will put a door on it, but I do have the cut out piece still in case I change my mind.

Here is one of the benches for the dinette / berth.

Added the other cabinet wall which will house the porta-potty and put in the framing for the other dinette bench / berth.

You know when you were a kid and the excited feeling you would get Christmas Eve thinking about what you might find under the christmas tree the next day once you woke up.  That is the feeling I have been getting the last couple of week working on the interior.  The light at the end of this tunnel is so close it is starting to feel like a never ending Christmas Eve and I just can't wait to wake up.

Starting to close in the berth and the benches.

All the panels are cut out and resting in place.  I still need to do some fine planing and sanding to get it all to fit correctly, but it is sure coming together.

Hope everyone has a great 2014!
