We have always tried to live up to Gypsy’s name. This has meant plenty of color and red doors were one of the first color additions we gave Gypsy. We plan on doing plenty of ocean sailing so the doors have given way to hatch boards. Hatch boards are simple and strong. They also don’t have to be varnished so after getting the Gypsy G etched into the wood we painted them red. The red paint took four coats, but it is very shiny. As with many projects this one has been in the works for quite a while, getting started in October and finally being complete.
We have also been working on the wet locker and shelf unit across from the head. We got the bulkhead installed and tabbed to the hull.

The washboards look fantastic! I love the color and the etching. That’s very clever to use velcro for the seams on the insulation. Looks like you guys have been working hard – lots of good progress.
Yes, I don’t think you can have a proper boat unless you use velcro. Your picture hangers were a cool non velcro alternative.
Wow, you can’t miss that in a fog! You can successfully do colors most of us can’t. We’re thinking of you as we sit here in Friday Harbor. Gypsy is certainly looking sharp!

Friday Harbor sounds wonderful right now. I hope you are having a great summer cruise. We would love to get together this fall and we could do a color consultation for Dromen.
