Got the head mostly installed. Just gotta secure the macerator and wire it to a keyed switch. Also got the crash bulkhead mostly done, all that’s left with it is some sanding and tabbing it to the sides. The foredeck still needs a bit of glass work, which I hope to tackle on Friday, then it’s time to paint. We also ran a steering line and got to play around in the bilge.
As soon as I can get hauled out we are going to replace and move the steering ram. It’s currently inaccessible unless you drop the rudder and I simply don’t like that. Also on the haulout list is the stuffing box, rudder bearing, cutlass bearing and steaigtening out the prop. Haulout places are booked 1-6 months so I’ll have a week to do it all, fortunately I will have some hired help.
