The interior looked so good that I saw no need for another top coat, so I removed the masking tape and called the overhead painting complete. 










The original door to the locker beneath the galley was an abomination of particle board and wood veneer contact paper.  This was one of the first things the owners had wanted to replace, and with good reason.

From some leftover teak on hand, I milled rails and stiles for a new panel door the same size as the original, and glued up the frame with epoxy.  I planned to fill the open space with a panel, whether painted plywood, teak and holly plywood, or some other choice to be determined.


After final preparations, I applied a sealer coat of varnish to all sides of all the woodwork I'd sanded and cleaned so far.


Back in the boat, I installed the through hull valves and tailpieces, using pipe dope on all the threads.  Afterwards, I installed new hoses for the scupper and galley sink, and reinstalled the sink with its flange screws in a bed of butyl tape.



Preparing ahead for some final hull work and high-build primer prep, I temporarily dismantled the staging, then took the opportunity to check the hull for athwartships level, making minor adjustments as needed.  This step was necessary so I could accurately tape off the waterline and, later, the boottop.

(I see the flash thwarted my close-up on the forward level...)
