You bet. I've just finished the pilothouse window trim work and will be making the chart tables and helm control areas a bit more woody. Can't wait to start on our new helm, but many projects to finish first. I'm back in Key Biscayne now, but I'll be heading out to Stuart again in the morning to get back to the winter goals.

Yes, it was very rewarding. Until I put my hand down on a missed tack strip.

I told my girl this morning - "This is love". She told me to stop goldbricking, put down the phone, and get back to work.

That's my girl!! ❤❤❤

I finally finished this and got it on the bridge this week. The cooler is a 12VDC/120AC unit with very lo amp draw. I added additional insulation to the box so the unit sits in there tight. No more buying ice for the bridge cooler. This baby hold 113 cans of beer and can be used as a freezer, which we will probably do when we cruise full time. The box is Mahogany and African Rosewood.
One to the next project!

"This baby hold 113 cans of beer" ...

OK, is that a theoretical volume calculation, or have you actually stuffed it that full?

The connection/fitting for the power cords is set up and sloped to drain the box if water ever gets in it, which it should not. The actual cooler has no internal to external drains. The 113 can number is and advertised number from dometic.

If ideal ever sends me my new wildcat I'll install it. I should prob remind Cliffe at ideal that he has my chain sample.
I'm sure I'm forgetting some other stuff. Never ends but that's ok.
Finally got all my windlass parts so can put it back together this weekend!

Holy smokes, Dave....that is a beautiful work you've done there. 113 cans of beer really is theoretical, as anyone who has installed such a device for such a purpose would already be throwing back a few as the stocking was being done.

It would have been a lot sooner but my manager (Al) says the time isn't right yet. I don't know what the hell THAT means!

Funny Walt! PG, I have also been trying to get SHII to come north. I think he's secretly afraid of running aground!

I'm sitting here on a crowded DC corner dodging raindrops and buses...wishing I was back in the delta!

Well come on up Walt, you and I can share that fear together. Besides, Sea Horse II draws more water than Bliss. It'll give me someone to follow when the water gets skinny

Craig; Don't misunderstand me, when I come, I will fly up there! Can't wait to meet all you guys & gals and possibly wait for hours in FlyWright's cockpit for a sturgeon to bite.

Hours? You're being kind, Walt! I've waited days and weeks. When sturgeon fishing, waiting is half (or more) of the fun!

You guys with keel-protected props have got nothing to worry about as long as your reverse works. I'm a bit envious of y'all.
