Got back at it. cut out lower cabin side panels,transition shelf and cabin side panels (big pile of sawdust). Installed the lower side panels, and transition shelf, used upper side panels to try to keep shelf level. Will take upper side panels back off and finish them on the bench once Ms Jones's fillets harden up.

Yes, it is nice having Ms Jones help out, sure speeds up the process and adds an element of quality control that I sometimes do not have. Unfortunately, she is off to Ireland to take her 90 year old mother back home to visit the extended family, so I am on my own for a few weeks. Today,I made my cabin rooftop beams out of white oak. Uses my CNC to make a template for a pattern cutting bit, and used my router to cut out the beams. Amazing what a sharp router bit will do. I also cut scarfs on my 3 1/2 sheets of 1/4 ply for my cabin roof and coated them with epoxy. We have a stretch of good weather, so I can use my barn for coating sheets of plywood as my shop is full with the boat. My plan is to make a sandwich roof with two layers of 1/4 inch ply with insulation and room for wiring between them. Plan to build right on the top of the boat, and "scarf in place" the pieces of plywood. Would love any thoughts on this idea, also suggestions on what to use for insulation between the layers.

LIndy,

Awesome job on the roof supports, beautiful wood as a bonus.  FishyFish forum has foam roof examples using the pink foam, Dan B used a lot of PVC rigid foam on his build although I dont remember his roof.  I used pvc rigid 1/2 foam sandwich on my roof I used 1/2" plywood on the perimeter overhang extending inward a few inches to the interior.

I would have put in solid (plywood) blocking for the light fixtures and radar mound if I knew where I was going to put them.

With only 1/4" ply on both sides, you definitely want to put thought into where antennas, roof rail mounts, radar tower, interior hand rails (if any), etc. will be, because these will be through-bolted and will compress the sandwich construction, so you'll want solid blocking there. This was a big headache for my build that I wish I had thought through ahead of time better.

Your cabin looks huge. What did you decide for a ceiling height ?

Cabin is 11 feet long, 6 ft 3 high. Outside deck is 3 1/2 inches higher, so top of House is 5 11 1/2 off aft deck, kinda short but I am only 5 ft 8 inches. Lots of compromises figuring out how long and how high to make the cabin. As with all things boat, everything is never going to be perfect, so that's why we keep building new ones.

Got the cabin roof on today, after about 10 hours, 3 1/2 sheets of plywood, and about 1000 screws its on. Scarfed the sheets in place on the roof beams. We will see tomorrow how it all turns out. Overhang on aft deck is 14 inches with the 3 1/2 sheets, will await Ms Jones's return from Ireland to figure where to lop it off, plans call for minimal overhang aft, but boating in a rainforest, a bit may be nice.
