Good to hear from you Steve, the punch list is getting shorter. I would think the more you can get done while she's in dry dock the better.

Steve, that paint job is top notch. I for one cannot wait to see launch pictures and a grand tour. Thanks for the update.

Pete good to hear from you... will definitely have more time for travel after we get the boat on the water!

Best regards,

A quick post for the Holiday... Haven't had much to show for interior work so here are a few pics of where we're at.

The doors are built and the day head door is now hung with latch in place.

Day head door frame finished to 1 3/8" from 6/4 stock
This is a look down the spiral stairs to the below deck cabins... the railing took a few tries to get the right curve.

Here's the main cabin vanity with counter top and sink in place. Still need to apply veneer and finish.

That's it for now. Happy Thanksgiving!

Bet it feels great to have a door to open instead of just a drawing on the floor.

Looks great bud.

She's looking really wonderful Steve. Nice job on that handrail. I've done some bending of steel tubing in my life and that is not easy to get right. Thanks for the update. I see I'm not the only one who delays making cabinet doors and drawers.

He can put the drawers in after the move. It will be lighter that way. :lol:

Thanks Jim and Bryan; we had a relaxed Thanksgiving.

Billy, getting the doors built and installed has been a great relief (not to mention the enhanced privacy :lol: )!

Carl and Matt, the drawers have actually been built and installed but the cabinet door and drawer fronts are waiting for the next batch of lumber. Kind of missed the runway on figuring material for finish work :? . Those rectangular openings over the vanity are open cubbies...

Thanks to all for your kind words!

Regards,

Steve

Thanks Gayle, I appreciate your kind words. The performance and beauty of the Glen-L designs are what make all the effort worthwhile.

Best regards,
