The small cabinet with the brass knob looks like it was always planned. Quite pleased with the solution.
However, the stove mounts that were provided were pretty flimsy so I made some beefier one's out of 3/16" bronze that would be less likely to saw through the stove mounting studs.
The Navigator Stove Works heater is finally installed. Looks very nice. Can't wait to fire it up. The stainless steel shield panels are backed with 5/8" RADAR fire rated ceiling tile and spaced from the bulkheads with stainless spacers 1/2" to allow for air circulation.
I asked my Father to carve the name board since I have minimal carving experience. I wanted elegant and simple and I think it looks great. Removable with two bronze machine screws.
Added the bronze safety bars for the skylight.
Drilling block for the winch base holes.
Coaming backing plates
Deck Backing plates.
Winches installed. Holes were as usual counter sunk a bit to leave a good ring of goop around the bolt as it passes through the deck and coamings.
The stern tube and propeller shaft installed. The effort in installing the motor paid off and only had to shift the motor about 3/16" to starboard to align it. The Prop is a 17" Campbell Sailor.
Put the battery switch on the side of the engine box out of the way but accessible. The main panel is just around the corner under the cockpit safe, accessible and out of view.
Two Trojan AGM batteries with all it's wiring.
The main panel. A Blue Seas 10 position panel. Still need to run the exhaust through the hole to the right of the panel.
The panel open.
Finished installing the second 100 liter water tank in 316 - 14G Stainless with baffles. This tank you fill from inside. All the sea cocks, tank valves, tank fill and bilge pump are accessed by lifting only two sole boards.
