Aventura 40

Now that the stem and taffrail pieces were complete and prepared with a sealer coat of varnish, I continued with their final installation.  The taffrail was all set to go, as I’d prepared all the fastener holes during initial fitting, and installation went quickly.

To install the stem, I marked and drilled/tapped all the fastener holes, as usual, and with that complete I installed the wood in a bed of sealant.

Afterwards, I bunged the screw holes.

Finally, I applied a second coat of semi-gloss white enamel to the interior overhead.

Total time billed on this job today:  1.75 Hours
