Calliope Girl 118


In the cabin, I worked to finish up the trim around the galley, including cleaning up the new bulkhead trim  as needed at the seams, and lightly sanding it to prepare for varnish.  I also installed various pre-finished trim pieces at the tops of the bulkheads, where they met the underside of the sidedecks, and on either side of the electrical panel to finish off the space.  Then, I masked off the bulkhead trim and other areas as needed to prepare for varnish.

Next, I installed the four doors in the upper settee lockers, the first four I’d finished off with hinges and hardware.  At each location, I installed a roller catch on the inside of the opening to align with the catch already installed on the door itself.

After a light sanding and final preparations, I varnished again the cabin sole, and also varnished the new bulkhead trim, plus another coat on the long cabin side trim pieces down on the bench.  I also sanded and painted the battery locker hatch.

To finish up the day, I installed the hinges, knobs, and catch hardware on the remaining six cabinet doors.  (For some reason over the past days I’d been counting nine total in my head, but of course there were ten doors total.)

Total time billed on this job today: 7.5 hours

0600 Weather Observation: 48°, partly clear. Forecast for the day: Showers in the afternoon, 59°
