That's really coming together nicely. It must be a real hardship having to work indoors through the winter months. :-P

Heated too!

If it were outside, nothing would or could get done. Plus the marina is right next door. Do, when we gather all the stuff bought this week and throw it in the car, load up some finished canvas, pack some bottled tea for drinking, and driving over, it's just a short drive to come back and pick up the keys for the boat........
Thanks

Also replaced every dried out and broken wire ties under the helm and routed the wires from the arch to wherever they were headed.

Still have to mount the VHF, the Loudhailer, and find a place for the separate bridge am/fm/cd/everything else unit, which can go almost anywhere since it is remote control. Had a pair of older unused MB Quart German made speakers (not the new Chinese junk) and mounted them in place of the bad OEM speakers.
Thanks

Been working on the side windows for the bridge enclosure and the covers for the seating. The boat's been put outside now. We were the last in, so first out.
Of course, cold and windy, so difficult to work.

Brian, the counter top guy came buy to check two templates out because he wasn't sure about our new galley sink location, and he wanted to check out something with one of the templates for the forward bedroom.

Anyway, he brought over the granite piece for the bridge table, if that's what it's called.

He says install of the granite is next week.

Started the install of the granite. Somehow Brian missed the ac vent at the bar and the head. So those pieces had to go back. The job will be finished up next week. Did get the stainless sheet in where the mirror was at the bar, and rehung the cabinet, but didn't get pix of that yet. The rectangular hole at the bar is for a new TCC buit in blender - similar to the old Nutone units, but electronic controls and a nicer finish.
Wait till y'all see the crazy faucets we are installing.

So, here's about where it's at right now.
