Hi all!
I haven't been here for a few months. Life happens and I have spent my time managing health issues, both mine and in the family, so no sailing this season either. The boat has been neglected for a while but I have finally got around to varnishing interior wood and started lining the hull.
Due to the hulls construction it has to be done in many small pieces so it will take some time.

I look for subtle places, beaches, riversides and the ocean's lazy tides.
I don't want to be in races, I'm just along for the ride.

Glad to hear you have again found some time for the boat.

Good luck with it, and most of all, good health!

I seem to be repeating myself but.. progress is slow but steady.
The main part of the galley is don and I am working my way up the port side.

As photobucket have decided to start charging for their service I expect my images to disappear shortly so I am trying the "attachment option". We will see if it works.

Any sail boat regardless of size is a potential world cruiser, but a power boat is nothing more than a big expense at the next fuel dock

I have been able to put in some hours and it is finally starting to resemble a boat again.
I have been forced to stray somewhat from the KISS-principle. There was simply not enough room for a conveniently placed porta-potti so I have installed a pump out head with holding tank. I realized that the soundproofing of the engine compartment I had used, the foam with aluminum foil type, was so 1990:s and is actually scientifically incorrect so I ripped it out and replaced it with state of the art space age material (actually the space age was the 60:s and 70:s. Since then we have not gone past low earth orbit) which is a foam with a lead/bitumen backing that absorbs the vibrations in the bulkheads. Now starting on the V-birth with the intention of getting the whole hull insulated before it gets cold. This way I hope I can work on the interior all winter.

I hope the pictures in my last post are showing!?
I am gluing a 10mm closed cell foam mat to the GRP surfaces and covering that with a vinyl liner which has a 5mm foam backing. The decks and cabin top have a foam core laminate and I will cover the deck areas with a 6mm rubber/cork composite. I think she will be quite cosy.
The soundproofing is from a Swedish company  called Karnag.  http://karnag.se/ljudisolering.html

Yes....pictures show fine when you are on your thread.
Looking good.....and very ‘tidy’ for a work in progress.
Thanks for the link.

V-birth coming along.
I made a sort of A-frame of wood resting on the hull reinforcing stringer and filled up the voids with foam which I then glassed over creating a flat ledge all around the hull which I can make a watertight seal against.
I also cut some holes for the windlass and chain locker. Always nervous to make big holes. Measure twice, have coffee and then measure again before cutting.

Wow looking good. I like the idea you had to make a sealing surface in the v-berth.  8)

Making progress.
Bow is duly compartmentalized (is that even a word?) and the electrical systems are coming together.
