Scupper 132


An appointment kept me out of the shop much of the day, but upon my return in the afternoon I had enough time to finish up the cabin sole in the forward cabin.  The process was the same I’d been through on previous days, and was not particularly noteworthy.  Once I filled in the center opening in the berth, the planks were all short in length, but the bulkheads on both sides of each narrow space were inconsistent enough that I could only cut and install two or three planks to the same measurement before the lengths or angles changed enough to force a different size.

At the outboard ends, I removed the lower ceiling boards, which I’d held up 1/4″ to allow for the sole to slip beneath, and filled in the final angled pieces towards the curved hull; once reinstalled, the ceiling covered the plank ends cleanly.

To complete the installation in both cabins, my next step would be to cut and fit baseboard trim around all the edges:  a project for next time.

Total time billed on this job today:   3 hours

0600 Weather Observation:  40°, light rain.  Forecast for the day:  Clouds and showers, 50°
