Cabin Progress

The project slowed down for a few weeks but we are now back up to full speed.  I am presently working on a major redesign of the anchor roller system that will cut the totlal weight by 40 lbs.  Juan is back from a three week holiday and making good progress on the interior construction.  Recent photos below:

From the companionway looking forward with the galley port and chart table  / Cool Blue refrigerator freezer starboard.

From midship looking aft.  Starboard side used to be settee with bookshelves behind plus quarter berth. Now we have narrower settee with 92 inch long pilot berth over and machinery space/storage all the way aft. 

The rollers are tied directly to the cranseiron.  The locking plate will be through bolted with 6 each 3/8 x 2 1/2 in bolts and large aluminum backing plate. The 15 kilo Rocna will look down and stow below the bowsprit.

I have uploaded more interior photos at Flickr Interior and anchor roller photos at Flickr Anchor.
