Opening Up the Pilothouse
The biggest project we’ll be working on this winter is building a new fridge and freezer for the boat. After thinking about this project for several years, we decided that the space between trunk cabin and the front of the pilothouse is the perfect spot since it’s a space that doesn’t get much use. We also need to remove some of the original wood from the front of the pilothouse that has started rotting. Most of the rot has come from rainwater that settles in under the pockets where the windows drop down.
This week was devoted to removing the old wood and assessing what needs to be replaced. Click on the pictures to see them as larger images.
Take Time to Learn CPR
A month ago I learned just how important it is to learn CPR when my Dad had a heart attack. Here’s a link to Christine’s post at Yachting Magazine about learning CPR and why it’s important for boaters.
Below is a picture of Christine’s Dad, Steve, riding the bicycle this summer on the David B’s pilothouse roof.
