With the “throne room” ceiling panels faired and ready to install, I finally get to permanently mount the hull wall panel and throne side cabinet that have been getting in the way for the past month.
Hull wall panel final test fitted
Back side of the hull wall panel epoxy sealed and insulated
1″ x 1″ mahogany framing cleats and porthole backing panel wetted out with epoxy
Epoxy thickened with wood flour and cabosil is applied over wet epoxy
Hull wall panel glued and screwed
While the wall panel epoxy kicked, I squared away the 120vac and 12vdc wiring that will be inside the head cabinets. I reinstalled the future sink drain PVC pipe and secured the PEX hot and cold water supply lines that will go to the sink.
Next, I installed the throne room side cabinet
The side cabinet is glued and screwed to the wall using pocket screws.
All electrical and plumbing connections are accessible behind the [future] back panel of the side cabinet
Ready to install the throne back panel
Throne back panel needs an access panel
The access panel in the throne back wall panel gives good access to the thru-hull pipes for the sink drain and forward bilge pump.
Throne back panel glued and screwed in place
Easy access to the thru-hull pipes, wiring, and plumbing
Insulated top panel ready to glue and screw in place
Nice, tight fit between the top panel and the hull wall panel
Looking good…pretty much like the concept rendering
