Scupper 157


To finish off the doors to the forward cabin, I installed a slim piece of slippery plastic on the bottom trim, which slightly raised the doors to their final position and improved operation.  I installed the trim with screws in countersunk holes.

To secure the doors when opened, I installed brass latches at each end.

The companionway ladder and door required a latch to hold it closed on one side, plus another grab handle on the inside to help operate the door from within.  I salvaged these bronze pieces from the original doorway.

Continuing work on the galley countertop, I carefully sanded off the raised edges around the four openings, much as I’d done earlier on the loose hatches.

Afterwards, I applied some of the tabletop epoxy to the sanded and cleaned edges on the two locker openings.  I didn’t need to apply the epoxy to the stove and sink openings since the edges would be hidden by the installations.

With the countertop hatches on the bench, I installed the brass ring pulls.

After a light sanding and cleanup, I applied a second coat of semi-gloss white paint to the companionway and trim rings.
