Scupper 259


After a trip out into the world to drop off the transom template at the sign shop, I spent a little time aboard the boat to install new ring pulls on the table top storage bin.  The new pulls were slightly larger in overall diameter than the old, though the same as the pulls I’d installed in the cabin sole hatches, so I had to enlarge the recess by just a bit, which I did with a Forstner bit in a drill press.  Afterwards, installation was straightforward.

Somehow, the boat and table had made it 42 years without someone installing a way to secure the table leaves when lowered; the banging leaves drove me crazy in only a matter of seconds even with the boat on the hard.  To deal with this, I installed a pair of simple brass hooks to secure the leaves in place when lowered, tightly against the table frame at the aft end.

I sanded and prepped the companionway boards and tiller for their next coats of varnish, but was awaiting new varnish so I postponed the application till later.
