Circe | Tuesday, February 2, 2010

Preparing for the final installation of the pulpits and stanchions, I drilled and tapped all the epoxy-filled fastener locations for 1/4-20 machine screws, and milled small countersinks in the top of each hole.   I didn't have enough sealant immediately on hand to complete all the installations--sealant was on order and due in an afternoon delivery--but I had enough to bed all six stanchion bases, which I completed right away.



I wiped down the interior overhead in all areas, and applied a coat of single-part primer to begin the painting process.




By the time the priming was complete, my delivery had arrived, and armed with fresh sealant I installed the bow pulpit.

I knew I'd not enough time in the day to complete the stern pulpit installation now, so I elected to clean up all the sealant from the stanchions and bow pulpit installations, after which I set the six stanchion tubes in place.  In the morning, I'd complete the stern pulpit installation.
