The Easter Bunny brought Nina a can of 3M Super 77 spray adhesive and she went to town gluing up vinyl. While Bill washed all the green gunk off of Gypsy. Nina beautified the cabin. In the end we had a cleaner boat and a spiffier cabin.
Meanwhile the seatback fronts and the shelves are getting worked on. The plywood seatbacks have the door openings cut out and they are getting hardwood trim glued to the opening. The shelves got their front fiddles glued on so the stuff on the shelf won’t slide out when the door gets opened.
The weather has warmed up so we no longer have to use a space heater to get the epoxy to set. We also have more hours of light to work by. The next step is to get everything painted and installed. So it’s paint a coat, wait a day for it to dry and then paint the next coat. One coat of primer and a couple of coats of finish paint means that it takes three or four days before one side is done. Flip it over and start again. If we time it right and the weather cooperates, we could install it this coming weekend! We still have some sanding to do so maybe it will be the weekend after. Honestly, it’s not like we have a shortage of things to do on the boat. And life does, occasionally, get in the way.
