Starting the interior of Catbird 16

Now the slow work starts with the fitting out of the hull. You can see here in the picture below that I’m attaching the seat supports and deck beam for the aft deck. I used brackets as intermediary supports for the seats instead of cleats and legs so that the  cockpit sole would be clear. Making it easier to clean and giving more room to lie down in the forward section underneath the spray hood.Fitting out the interior of a 16 foot sharpei lug sail yawl by Roeboats, Ballydehob, Ireland, for saleHere the seats are being fitted to the hull curvature and will be fixed down to the supports with the required doublers for taking the strain of the fittings that will be attached.

Here the deck carlin is going in. It’s white oak so I had to rip the forward end so that it would take the bend . The pile of stuff on the foredeck are parts of the rudder.Interior fit out of 16 foot sharpie yawl by Roeboats, West Cork Ireland For Sale

Once the carlin was in place I was able to begin work on laying the deck; but before that I had to make a template for the cockpit coaming. This is the forward section been marked out. You can just see the deck doublers at the fore deck. I decided to infill the whole deck as there are a lot of fittings in this area which would otherwise require lots of separate pads. This should make the bow strong and stiff to take the forces exerted by the unstayed mast.
