Hope you had a cold one when the day was done! Great looking pictures, wait, where are the pictures? :doh:

It looks just like mine did at that stage of construction it will go quick now I will try and find pictures of my solar panel it is quite small 4 inches by 12 inches built to sit on the dash of a car to keep the bat topped up. It works well in my boat even under a tarp in the winter it keeps the bat topped up. It was cheep around $30 if I recall I have had it in place for 8-9 years now and it still works. It keeps my lights depth sounder and GPS and radios working just fine

Today I measured / cut to length all of the cleats that will support the seat tops. It's not warm enough to get them installed but at least they'll be ready when the time comes. Once the cleats are installed I'll be able to paint the berths and get the seat tops installed.

That is great! Will your seats have any bedding that when you sleep on them they will be more comfortable?

Bogieman, she is looking good. Have you painted the sleeper berths yet? What did you decide on for primer/paint?

Since you will not see under the bedding on the berths, a little non skid will help hold the foam inplace.
