The hardware installation on the cabin roof has been completed. Now I am waiting for a good day to do the final coat of paint on the fore-deck and in the cockpit. All the edges under the transom skirt and the forward rails are already done.
I have masked the outside of each dead-light with clear film, cut a circle, and removed the outer bit. I used some of the interior paint to cover this area and the outside edge. Once installed, the white area, when viewed from the inside, will be behind the glass and cover the flange. The glass will be bedded down with a small bead of white marine adhesive around the inside edge of the flange. Once the bolts and acorn nuts are in place it should look quite ok.
