Started to build the goodies for the port side of the house.  Im pretty much sticking to the plans.  Planning on using the flip flop front seat.  Still Messi g around with the refer while its outside the boat.  It wont fit through the door with the gasket flange on both sides(Thanks Rbob, Im using your idea for the doors and seals).  I know it looks big Brian!   Its not as big as it looks.  It is 6 over actual with the insulation.  Its just over 4 cuft.

Looks good to me, and I like all the sticks that hold everything in place while you 'stitch weld' epoxy to lock things in ... :D

The panels werent very flat after I cut them.  The unthickened epoxy before the stitches made a real slip and slide!

Lots of busy work on the boat this weekend.  The stuff that really doesnt show much progress.  I did start building the house door.  Once again Rbob deserves much thanks for providing a solid plan for another piece of my boat.  Thanks!  Im crafty enough to build about  Anything, I just dont have the imagination    I got the wife In The boat to explain The accommodations.  She had a spectacular idea for the flip flop front seat back that Im really excited about.  If it works itll be really cool.  Pics soon I hope

This is a great way to build a door .. it's light, and it'll stay flat over the years.

A I said above.  I used the idea from Rbob.  Many of his build elements have found their way on to my project

Very clever!  Can you share the dimensions for your work?

HTH.  I need to trim about 1/8" off of the front edge of the seat.  In the photos it is just wedged in there for the bunk.  I will need to add some light cleats to carry it in the down position.  after I'm done painting I will add a couple of 1 x 4 across the seat box inside top to carry the cushions when the seat is down.  This will give me something to attach the seat to while under way.  It will require some sort of through bolts or fasteners of some sort.  This will also allow for some adjustment fore and aft, depending on who is sitting there, like a poor boy seat slider.   I'm open to suggestions!  A foot rest on the aft cuddy bulkhead is in order too.  Note that the seat stops just short of the cabin side walls.  It can hang over into the passage way some too if needed.  This design allows full storage all the way to the side of the boat without the dead space necessary to flop just the seat back as shown in the design package.
 This has no more moving parts than the flip flop back.  And there is no spare or extra parts to stow going back and forth.
