Construction in the galley continues, November/December 2012

New drawers and a large spice, will you let me post pictures right side up??
Ready for lockers and shelf on the starboard 

Starboard lockers  and shelf over sink done

Port side ready

Port side done
Every little project done makes a big improvement in life onboard. Although this looks quick and easy, it actually entailed several weeks of work to complete.  Still to come: finish the corner on the port side where it joins the settee, counter tops, and finish the raw plywood edges with some kind of cherry molding.

Sailing at last

Nine years to get this project from semi-derelict to hoisting the sails for the first time. Much yet to be done, but nothing to keep from traveling under her own power now. This is from May 2011, five days after her first sail.
