Boat building took about a 3 week hit with not much done while life took me for a small detour. Back at it more now but wish I had more hours to give. Anyway finally got the roof painted, I hope to install it this weekend. I still have one more finish coat to put on.
 I also installed 4 fiberglass tubes with a  3/8"i.d. the tube sticks below the bottom of the top enough to get a hose clamped on it to catch rain water in a pinch. It's one of the reasons I built the top the way I did.
 I only got 4 weeks to geter done. Not sure I see that happening.

Im dense. To collect fresh water? Thats a great idea, crap, another change to consider. Cheaper than a desalination pump for sure.

Yep fresh I hope! I figure knowing me I might loose or misplace a pump. If I loose my built in rain catch I'll be in big trouble:)

Collecting fresh water is cool ... also need to drain the roof anyway, hopefully not onto a window that opens :)

Looks great!  I'm very envious of your shop.... all that space and a big paint booth.

Thanks! It does make it nice, I have built boats in my garage/shop also so I feel most people pain building in tight quarters. The both is big enough to get the boat in but I don't think I can make the corner into it. Sure makes it nice

Been dry fitting gunnel storage doors, bench tops, head/shower walls ect. I am making the top half of the head wall removable to be able to get the sliding windows in and to be able to replace the frame should it ever fail. Trying to get everything ready for shooting the first few coats of primer on the entire boat. My goal is to have it painted and mostly done ready for some horse power and a test run by 7-8-21. Not sure if that's even possible but we will see lots to do. My Garmin 1242 SXV and 18" Fantom radar dome came in so time to have some fun, all electrical work is starting. Somebody was asking on another thread about what other have done for a head in the wheelhouse, can't remember but hope these photos help.

Great interior pictures, thanks for posting those!  How things fit in that space is something I've really been thinking about a lot.

Every inch on the starboard side matters and its different for everyone. I waited until I had the helm dry fit with the steering wheel attached including the binical with my seat attached to a box and moved it around til I was happy. I have 9 feet in the wheelhouse wish I had another 6" but I'm a bigger guy at 260 lb's need more room :)

Good quality sliding door hardware is hard to find especially for a 1/2" thick door. I ended up going with a lock for a 1" think door. I added a piece of 1/2" solid mahogany a bit larger than the lock itself to make the door 1" think just where the lock is. When I bought this lock it said there were no directions whatsoever for all the mutable morticing that had to be done. Direction said not to buy it unless it was installed by a experienced cabinet or woodworker. boy were they right. Took 8 hours just to make the jigs to rought out all the areas.

 Finally got the roof ready to be glued on later today or tomorrow, she is all painted on the top and edges.

Lookin good! Something to consider, I supported my roof down the center with 18mm hydrotek cut per spec in the plans (with handles like you have). It's now sagging a bit in the middle, and I wish I had gone a bit more stout. I want to be able to sleep up there in good weather but I am not sure I will feel comfortable putting so much weight on the top of the roof. Perhaps it was a roof construction issue and not the cross members specifically or maybe I screwed up when I glued it in and it was sagging then (didn't notice it) but I wish I had doubled those up in thickness or gone with vg fir or similar. Probably too late to realistically change that for you but... It's really too late for me :)
