Fitting out

I made a couple of shims/wedges for the nav-lights and glued them down. These wedges are necessary for the lights not to be cross-eyed. I also drilled holes for the wiring into the bottom of the Dorade boxes. On the port side the hole goes straight into the electrical box, and on the starboard side the hole comes into the cabin just forward of the top cleat on bulkhead 2. The wire will run along this cleat to the electrical box containing the switch panel. This box has now a ‘power point’ installed. The spare spot in the panel will be occupied by a battery monitor.

The companion-way step has ‘floor-boards’.
