    If you do I will tell you one little trick we did. Of course we made a template out of 1/4 press board first (it's a tricky little area to get a great fit). Then applied the template to the plywood getting the plywood cut pretty well into the space. But then to get a truly perfect fitted plywood piece we did this. We taped wax paper onto the windscreen everywhere that the plywood needs to butt to windscreen. Put the plywood in place and "filled the gaps" between plywood edges and windscreen / wax paper with a hot batch of hull and deck putty. Once dried the plywood is a near perfect fit having been molded into an awkward space. I couldn't imagine doing this out of teak and getting a perfect fit :)

    That is a beautiful boat. Your progress is excellent. I have a couple of suggestions on the electrical. For super water resistant terminals, if you crimped on bare terminals, soldered, then heat shrunk waterproof heat shrink on top, you would have something that does not get green, even in the tropics. For the North East, it may not matter though.

    Also, on the white heat shrink used for labeling, I found that eventually sharpie markings fade. Best to use a heat shrink printing tool, such as what Brother makes.

    The nav lights being up high is excellent. Should make it much easier for ships to see the Lady Maureen.

    Thank you. My buddy Ceasar does already do some of your electrical tips. Will discuss the rest with him too.

    Really nice detail TJ...curious what's the thickness of the teak - 1/2"? The wire tray looks amazing too - part of the boat like a mold.

    Thank you Ted. The teak is about 3/4. Started rough at 7/8. By the time we mill and sand it's closer to 3/4.

    Updated ceiling / headliner pics. Got the 1" foam and panels cut and temporarily in place with cheap pine. Will change this out to teak battens when ready to install headliner permanently.

    All polished, waxed and painted. Gotta mount a few transducers and then will launch. Far from done but will keep working on it in the water.
