Great point about the horn at the second station. I will have to keep that in mind. What if you mount that switch vertically on the port side of the face with the wheel on it? Kinda sucks that the stickers would be oriented the wrong way though, but they would be easily accessible. BTW, I like that switch. Do you have a link?

I havent got far enough along for too much thinking on wiring stuff.  You make a good argument for the horn especially.  Shorter wire runs too for the stuff in the cockpit. I like it

Switch panels I got thru New Wire Marine, you design what switches etc. I chose circuit breaker style to eliminate another fusepanel.

Non skid on the floor and just sanitred coating on the sides. I  will do that last.

I finally drilled the transom, I  borrowed a jig,  removed jig and drilled 1 size larger. Using a dauber coated 2 coats a day for 5 days. I am confident it is protected.   ;D

On edit, fixed the photo.... I posted that from my phone and it did not work so good.. :o

The quality of your work always looks so good that the rest of us now have something to aim for.

Todd has inspired me to work on my boat!  I spent the day sanding (go figure) and varnished my grab rails and put the dash covering on.  If you remember I did not make room for the compass so I redid it.  Instead of painting I put a textured dash in.  I have to wait 24 hours between coats so a couple more days to finish the varnish.

What type of varnish are you using? I used rustoleum marine spar varnish for some, didn't really like it. Switched over to total boat gleam, like it more, but curious what you are using? Everything looks great. I need to post some pics, I just haven't felt like I have had anything pic worthy. I should probably post more...

Those switch panels look sweet!  As does everything else.   What are your plans for the PH   Ceiling?  Its super shiney, are you leaving it as is?

Good morning!

Answer to questions, the varnish I used is Sikkens Cetol Marine Teak, It was easy to brush on and only have one coat on so I will update when done.  The only reason I used it was for the teak bow grab rails, says it can be used on any wood so I did.  The only other varnish I have used was on my house door. 

For the interior of the pilot house and cuddy I purchased Hull Liner.  I need to install the Hull Liner before installing windows, once I finish the varnish I will move forward.

I know there was some discussions on the windows and hull liner.  Did you plan ahead to add hull liner into the clamping sandwich?   Motion said it would not work in my case.  Im wondering how hard it would be to put the hull liner flush to the clamp ring?

You can install the windows, and temp install the trim rings (over the hull liner) then cut around the hull liner using trim ring as your guide, remove the trim ring and pull the hull liner off where you trimmed it.  Just remember not to apply a bunch of contact cement in the area of the trim ring.

There are other work arounds to the Windows + Hull Liner issue.  The best way is to measure your finished thickness of the window opening including the hull liner and order the correct trim ring.  I did not think that far ahead..

Motion sells a trim ring spacer but its $2 per foot, I only need 1/16" so I will need 2-3 roll's of neoprene tape available on Amazon.  I will install the gasket between the trim ring and window frame.
