Calliope Girl 126


The project was winding down, but I had a few odds and ends remaining to finish up, starting with the chainlocker hatch, which I’d build simply from plywood and painted.  I contemplated ways to install some teak trim, but the pre-made and pre-finished pieces I had available weren’t really suitable, and I decided less was more with this hatch.

Next, I installed a sea rail in front of the galley range, ensuring it remained clear of the stove as it gimballed.

I reinstalled the hardware, then installed the hanging locker door after first removing my tools and supplied that I’d stored within.  For access to the hinges, which required the door be open, I had to remove the three inner pieces of the mast enclosure, which I’d planned to do anyway; I set those aside in the v-berth.  Then, I installed the door to enclose the head, unchanged from arrival.
