May be copying some of your stuff... Love the drain for the hatch.

I didn't realize how long it has been since my last progress post. The focus has been on as much interior finish work as possible, before the decks and gunnels go on. This post kind of sticks to what has been done in the bow compartment.

Image

The entire compartment between frames A and B was primed and painted with epoxy bilge paint.

Image

Image

A removable false floor was fit that provides "dry" storage for the compartment and easy access to the bilge below.

Image

False floor painted and fuel tank trial bolted into place

Image

Cuts made in frames A and B to accommodate the forward hatch framing

Image

Laminated fore to aft hatch support frames and laid up another hatch gutter using the same mold as the stern

Image

Image

Lateral laminated frames and forward hatch gutter trial fit. Like the stern, it will drain into the sole. Cleats for deck and gunnel support are also in place.
