Pics didn't upload trying again.
Some updated pics now with all the headliner "panels" installed. Next step trim it all out with teak battens (removable battens)
Galley lights added.
what type of rigid foam did you use for the overhead panels. also, how did you adhere the fabric to the foam. Looks good and thanks.
The vinyl comes adhered to the foam already. I bought from DB Engineering in Mansfield TX. It's 1" thick but they also have 1/2". DB also sells the spray glue. Camie makes it. It's simply a nigh heat resistant spray version of contact cement.
Got the new transducer mounted and painted. Launched today. Got lots left to do but she runs. Gonna keep working in the water and maybe fish locally. 2 1/2 years so far. I miss fishing.
What ducer did you go with?
I am super impressed on how much you have done to a high standard. Most people take much longer or quality slips greatly.
On the ducer fairing, could you cut more of the fairing off, so it does not stick down so far?
It’s the 3D transducer for the Furuno TZT. It’s basically a 50/200/165 kHz with temp and motion sensor. Not sure how good it is but going to give it a try. There’s also a 1k-50khz built in to the keel. Maybe swap them later but use a flush mount 1k-50-200. Trying this for now.
I’m sure there was a little more room but at that location it was about a 25 degree cut. Did not want to cut into the recess for the ducer. Also fighting the keel shadow, lower might help with side scan capability of the 3D. Ideally swap location later with the built-in that’s in the keel.
Have not made much progress on the renovation in last few weeks. Have been using the boat a little to fish local and shark tourny's. Here are a few pics my buddies on Kerri Lee took at Woodcleft shark tourney.
Now I plan on getting back to renovation work.
Looks Super !!
Finally started milling the teak and trimming out ceiling panels. All the teak trim and panels are removeable in case I need to run a wire, change a headliner panel or bolt through the roof.
looks very nice. How did you attach the strips to the overhead that the teak battens screw into? I saw in earlier photos it appeared to be a lot of shimming and looked more complicated than I would imagine. thx
The strips that attach to the actual roof were screwed and glued (5200). The shims were mostly about keeping the foam panels underneath the bolts on bottom side of roof from mast stays. Also the shims needed varied to create a uniform crowned finish with panels installed.
wow, attention to detail. Did you use a string line to establish a plane?
Yes. A string at times, other times a long straight edge (alum angle iron). And a phrase my carpenter buddies refer to as " eye-fucking ".
Updated pics. Two windshield wiper motors installed. Need wrap these up and wire before finishing up the ceiling trim.
Jason, Cesar and I did a long day yesterday. Carpentry, wiring and lights. Added a dedicated switch panel for wipers and interior lights. Finished the ceiling trim. Wired wiper motors and connected some of the lights to switches. Some pics included.
Few more pictures.
