The final task to complete the project was to install the new hinged mast step.  With all preparatory work already completed, now this was a simple chore of applying sealant and securing the base with four long bolts, large washers, and nuts.  Once the base plate was secured, I cleaned up the excess sealant, removed excess bolt length from inside, and attached the hinged top plate with its two pins.

To finish off the interior, where I’d cut a large hole in the liner to gain access to the underside of the deck, I installed the teak trim piece I’d made earlier.  Along the aft edge, where there were some small gaps, I installed a cosmetic bead of sealant to finish off the appearance.

With work complete, I cleaned up the decks, removing the protective coverings and completing the project.

Later, I moved Adeline back outside, parking her next to her sistership.
