I made some replacement steps for the stateroom stairs out of mahogany. The teak was way too expensive.

I installed the bottom step but have more bulkhead boards to fasten before the new top step goes into place.

I finally got around to installing the stair treads and ladder steps. We varnished them which looks great but makes them super slick. So we had to add safety grip pads to prevent accidents. Sometimes practicality overrides aesthetics.

I went back to work on the bulkhead from hell. Everything seems to attach or pass through this section of wall.

I installed a 3/4 inch oak board across the two plywood panels and another 3/4 inch thick center line board. The original plan had the engine and HVAC intake strainers plus the fuel/water separator mounted on the oak boards. They are necessary otherwise the fastening screws will go through the wall into the head, stairs and utility closet.

The rim joists and cross brace boards are installed along with aluminum angle braces.

I installed two 1 inch thick sound deadening insulation panels against the front bulkhead before I start attaching strainers and filters.

I just replaced the original sound insulation on my salon deck hatches. It was all of 1/4Ē foil covered foam. I used 1Ē with the loaded vinyl in the middle. It did make a difference in the sound although we always run the boat from the bridge so sound in the salon isnít that big of a deal. Yours looks good.

I was trying to determine the average reduction in decibels for the product. Nothing was posted and since the 1 inch thick was only about $20 more than 1/2” thick I went with the 1 inch. It does have the rubbery material within the foam.

The neighbor at the marina noted that I replaced all the intake thru-hulls with bronze fittings. He recommended that I replace two nylon drains on the port side. One is for the second bilge pump and the other is for gray water. I was dreading the removal. To loosen the mushroom head I slid a putty knife under the edge and I was astonished when they both popped off.
