Bulkhead No 6 ready.

I managed to spend a couple of afternoons at the garage this past week, mostly trying to finish and install bulkhead 6 and to clean up the place a little. Now that the main bulkhead of the central cabin is in place I can visualise it's dimensions and design it's configuration according to my needs. In one hull this central cabin will enclose the galley and it should have:

  • A food preparation bench with a sink
  • Shelves to stow food and provisions
  • A refrigerator (I haven't desided yet if it will be an electrical one or a plain ice box)

In the other hull the central compartment will be a separate toilet with enough space for:

  • A manual see toilet
  • A sink
  • a wet locker

Under the floor of each central compartment there is enough space to install a 70-90lt water tank which will give the boat and a crew of two water sufficiency to spend at least a week at sea without having to anchor in crowded harbours. I just have to figure out a way to pump the water from both tanks so that they empty simoultaneously. As temperatures are still low and I can't proceed with the fillets, maybe now is the perfect time to decide on the final configurations and start planning the boat's wiring and plambing.

Bulkhead No6 ready....

...And installed!
