Out came the skil saw and off came the cabin sides and top. We’re keeping the sliding hatch and grab handles which will save a good bit of work. The cabin will also be shortened by about 18″ or so.
Here’s a quick mock up of how the new sheer will look when the remodelling is finished. The forward raised section will be a well for an anchor and give good footing for working on the foredeck.
Above the new framing is being dry fitted before it gets epoxy coated and glued into position. The old side deck will now become and internal shelf and the overall feel inside the cabin will be much less constrained.
