We Have a Roof....AND Hatches!! (MJ Sailing - Ep 254)

we still have one week of boat work to show. In the last episode we managed to get the three pieces of our cabin top up on deck, with the help of Tucker and his dad's backhoe. With a few extra hands we move the heavy center piece into place, and you can really get a feel for the inside space.
Then Matt begins to beef up that area, by adding structural beams to the opening of our cockpit, and we make the area pretty by adding gelcoat covers.
Taking a Sunday off boat work to enjoy ourselves, we hop on Tucker's trawler and do a sea trial across the Chesapeake Bay, enjoying quick bourbon toast before heading back.
Lastly, and maybe the most exciting, is cutting the openings in the front section of our cabin sides to place our Vetus flush hatches in! The new amount of light it lets in is great...but once again, we get to work with our favorite task of unidirectional roping to go back and strengthen the area.
We hope you enjoy!
