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.

  Interesting.  Thank you. They didn’t offer a suggestion or workaround when I inquired. I will keep this in mind.  I hope to use the boat some before it’s completely upholstered.

Its been slow on the forum (and my build) but I have been gathering supplies for interior  "Hull Liner" and lots of electrical stuff, I will take some pics when I have more to show.

I built the base for the removable cuddy cushion and just finished wrapping the edges.  I absolutely love the 1" fiberglass tape to finish the edges, so easy to do. Just roll or brush some epoxy on the edges and wait a couple hours to get good and sticky and apply the fiberglass tape dry and it stays put.  Follow with a coat of raw epoxy on the edges and follow up with another thickened coat of epoxy.

Couple pics for the heck of it:

Are you then cutting it off flush with the surface once it starts to harden??

I will trim it off tomorrow after it is completely set with a snap blade type utility knife.  I have done it both ways and its easier when the glass is not sticking to my fingers. 

I use the Shinto Rasp the most to remove the leftover glass and drips after trimming with the razor knife and/or a good carbide scraper.  Whatever works and for non cosmetic trimming you can literally sand the protruding glass off with a d/a.

Update,

I was going to install VHF overhead but the fishing pole rack makes it too crowded and I don't want to stand up to access the radio, so I added a mount for it.  I could/should have made the dash have a little more room below the steering wheel and switches and installed the vhf there.  Hindsight..

I made some backing plates for the ceiling lights, horns and the radar which I have not purchased yet but I will be.  I want the supports already in and ready.

I've been unsatisfied with all the switch panels I've used over the years and have recently discovered the Newwire panels and am planning to specify them for a complete re-wiring job on a client's boat - they're the most compact solution with good labeling I've seen yet for simple switch panels. I think I still prefer standard Blue Sea breaker panels for cost/benefit but for switch-only panels the Newwire is the way to go.

Re. VHF.  If your radio includes AIS, did or do you plan to install a seperate ant for it?
