After Christmas Part 2

Steve Dentino installs trim along the steps leading out of the owner's cabin.

Starting forward and working our way aft, we'll take a look at what was being done on the interior of Bequia during the first week of January.

Construction in the forward cabin is largely completed and the painters are building up coats of paint, letting the drawer guys, Peter Fletcher and Chris Muise, slip in to install the drawer boxes. The tile guy from Fresh Water Stone is working in the forward cabin shower on the port side.

Amidships the settee to starboard has been installed and drawer boxes have been installed in the lower portion of the walnut bar cabinet.

In the galley the drawer fronts are being positioned and fastened to the drawer boxes.

In the captain's quarters the paneling work is installed. By the looks of it, it is to be painted, although most of the trim in the cabin and head (through the door on the left, top photo) are teak (bottom photo).

In the aft cabin the final trim is being installed, primed and painted. The drawer guys were just here, too, installing drawer boxes. Those guys are everywhere! Note that the drawer boxes are mounted on stainless steel full extension drawer slides.

In the next post we'll take a look at some of the systems being installed in early Jamuary.
