Old sparky? A reference perhaps regarding the nearness of the electrical panel to the head plumbing?
I had thought about that, but there is no actual plumbing on that side of the boat and the other side will have a sink (probably) so it should be okay. Just hope I don't have to interrupt someone's "reading" session to get to a fuse!
I also wanted it near the helm station which will be just aft of the head box (and outside of the cabin).
I have to say that while this is the fun part of the build, it is also the "slooooooooooooooooow" part of the build. I am looking forward to getting enough done to actually assemble something soon.
However, first thing I need to do is come up with an inexpensive vacuum source so I can veneer the plywood. Shop vac won't do for a couple of reasons. First it is noisy and I would need the vacuum maintained for at least 3 hours, maybe more depending upon temps while the epoxy cures enough to hold everything in place. I would prefer longer, say 8 hours. But even at 3 hours, the noise is unacceptable and the vac won't last long if I run it that long.
A new vac pump runs upwards from $100.00 so I would rather not do that (at least not right now - funds are a bit tight for XMAS), so I am going to try and find an old refrigerator pump. I think that for smaller pieces, the weight of cinder blocks would work (that's what I used when I veneered the inlaid gussets on frame 6), but for larger pieces like the head box sides and the partition, I want something more reliable and with consistent pressure. So I'll be vac bagging those.
