Week 3 comes to a close working on 4Winds – Dreadnought 32
As today ends so does another week of working on 4Winds. Much more accomplished than we expected. Now with the head completely framed out, Cabinet on starboard side is framed in and more.
This cabinet is just aft of the V-berth and on the starboard side across from the head.
We got the stantions mounted for the life lines, also the forward railing leading up to the bow pulpit.
This required a trip to West Marine, just to find out that the angles for the rail base is an odd angle. But with a little creativity we made it work for 4Winds.
We got started this morning on the interior walls that make up 4Winds’ head and shower. Walls are up door is temporarily in place and construction continues. The door in the photos is the original door that came with the boat. It along with some cabinet doors and drawers, and mahogany trim work is the only wood work we are keeping original on 4Winds.
We got the starboard side framed out, but by the end of the day we were just too out of steam to get the last bulkhead in. We still have a lot of fiberglass work to do on the wall connection but that will come next time.
Test Fitting the boomkin.
Looks like we are going to go with the custom-made aluminum boomkin, not the original wooden one the dreadnought came out with. We will up date as we make more progress on its install.
We are going to work on her tomorrow, but we are going to take a break and come back to work on 4Winds in two month (there about). In the mean time, keep checking back and feel free to comment, we will reply as we have time.
