|We almost forgot! The front window requires support in a couple of places toward the center. We knew that but have been putting off adding those until all of the plywood was brought in the would be too big to fit through the companionway. Then it was decided to make them in a way that the can be removable, i.e.. can be added after. We almost forgot to put in the mounting tabs for this!|
|Because most of the final
prep work for the pilot house will be outside, we likely
wouldn't have noticed.
No matter how much you plan, there's always that one thing that escapes thought. hehe.
|The coal tar coating was a
success. Care had to be taken not to let it run down into
the window seating and build up as this will be the way
the windows seal.
The front window won't have any holes drilled into it as there will be a frame all around it held in with bolts.
Tabs were welded on for support of the interior below the windows...remembered that.
Day 277: 7 hours - put in brackets for the pilot house front window supports, coal tarred
